Storyboard Text

  • You're in Tibet.   Did u know that  "The Tibet-Qinghai Plateau is a rocky land surrounded by towering mountains." (214)
  • Uh... Thanks I guess, I'm going to try to find somewhere else to go
  • Hi, So I'm Gene, and I kinda have no clue where I am, so um... Help, I guess.
  • We're in the Taklamakan Desert,  "The Taklimakan Desert covers an area of about 105,000 square miles and is considered one of the most dangerous deserts in the world. In fact, its name means “once you go in, you will not come out.”
  • Oh, Good, Dangerous, I'm going to call my mom on that payphone over there, and tell her I'm going to be late for dinner, wait, why is there a payphone?
  • Alright creepy ghost-thing, where are we now?
  • Let me guess, were in the gobi desert.
  • Exactly, "Most of the desert is stony. Its surface is made up of small pebbles and tiny bits of sand. Vegetation is sparse. Plants tend to be small and widely spaced apart." (215)
  • Just, Just, where the heck am I this time?
  • I mean the Northeastern plain, its really nice this time of year, really, it is.animals "...raised by herders.The major rivers running through the Northeastern Plain are the Liao (lyow) and the Sungari (SOONG-guh-ree). The Liao is a shallow river, only navigable by small boats. The Sungari is deeper and can carry larger boats. In the winter, when the waters freeze, people use these rivers as roads." (216)
  • OK. Where are we now?
  • The North China Plain. "This region is sometimes called the “Land of the Yellow Earth” because the ground is covered in yellow limestone silt, which comes from the Gobi Desert and is carried by the wind to the North China Plain. The river that runs through the plain is also full of yellow silt. The silt gives the river its name, Huang He (Yellow River)." (217)
  • where to now?
  • The Chang Jiang Basin. "The climate in the Chang Jiang Basins is warm and wet. In ancient times, the vegetation may have been thick rainforest. Although there was little space for farming and the area was not suitable for grazing animals, the basins were very good for growing rice, which needs abundant warmth and moisture." (218)
