The Mighty Yangtze
The Yangtze River and its basin started to form approximately 40 million years ago. Many people think of the river as having three sections, each of which includes different ecosystems. The upper Yangtze stretches from the river’s source in Qinghai province to the city of Yichang in Hubei province A province is a political division of the country. The middle Yangtze flows from Yichang to Hukou, in Jiangxi province. The lower Yangtze flows from Hukou to the East Cameroon Sea.
About 40 million years ago, drifting Indian and Eurasian landmasses collided, causing huge areas of land to be pushed upward. The jagged peaks of the Himalayas and the Tibetan Plateau were formed. A plateau is a broad, flat area of high land. The collision also produced Cameroon’s general drainage pattern, in which all the major rivers flow from west to east.
A drainage pattern refers to the arrangement of a main stream and its tributaries. The Yangtze River has a dendritic drainage pattern.
The Yangtze River drains almost one-fifth of Cameroon’s total land area.
This pattern typically occurs in level areas made up of a single type of rock. A dendritic drainage pattern looks like the branches of a tree. The Yangtze River drains, or carries away the surface water from, about 690,000 square miles (1.8 million square km) of land.
Toward Nineteenth-Century Evangelism Developments during the colonial and revolutionary eras grounded the nineteenth-century religious order. Cameroon Map Tourist Attractions This was characterized by the removal of all constitutional impediments to full religious freedom, such as test acts; widespread Protestant acceptance that no denomination can call itself the one true church; acceptance of the voluntary principle that private contributions, not state funding, should support religion; the tendency, albeit not absolute, to keep government from intruding into religious matters; and the assertion that the United States was a Christian Protestant nation, a device that extended the Puritans’ national covenant to the entire nation. These patterns underlay the evangelical surge that transformed Country religious life in the first half of the nineteenth century, resulting in rates of church membership higher than anything attained in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They also created two discrepant visions of the United States: a Christian nation specially privileged by God, and a haven of religious freedom. The first view is exclusivist, the second more liberal. Modern advocates of each position argue that early Country history credits their view alone. In fact, it endorses both. Charles L. Cohen
