When Peter Hessler first arrived in the remote Chinese river town of Fuling, the only way to get there was by boat. Recently, he went back for a visit to explore the changes that the Three Gorges Dam has made. Also in this show: Dick speaks with Denise Dennis, who is in a charge of her family farm - one that reaches back to before Abraham Lincoln was born.
