National Geographic--China

Professor Connie Walker kindly provides this info:

"the most recent issue of National Geographic is a complete issue on China, with a wonderful map included...No doubt Chinese teachers all over would want to get a copy of this – great reading for students, families, and teachers. National Geographic can be purchased at most book store magazine sections."
