In that following seven chapters, the book first presents the overall geographical features of the Yellow River, and then goes through the historical evolution and geographical changes of the Yellow River from how the Yellow River has nurtured the Chinese civilization, how the ancients investigated and understood the Yellow River and why the Yellow River is prone to be muddy and flooding to how the Chinese people harness the Yellow River since ancient times, to reveal the close relationship between the River and the Chinese civilization. Finally, the development prospects of the Yellow River are presented under the new situation to point out that the establishment of the new Yellow River civilization is more than a sweet wish since it already has a solid foundation. It is hoped that in the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the Chinese people will ceaselessly contribute to the new civilization.
