China is a vast agricultural country. Its prairie culture and grassland economy are a major component of the Chinese civilization and economy. Combining narration with rich historical materials, this book presents a panoramic description of steppe life and activity in the successive historical stages of hunting, nomadism, and modern animal husbandry. The book compares the ricissitudes of nomadism on the Mongolian Plateau with life on the grasslands of other nations and elaborates on the sustainable development of the steppe economy. Taking meat from the grassland as an example, the author aspires to galvanize his readers with his own passion.
