"The Nine Dragons Drained Dry, the East Sea in Turmoil" is described as a novel. However, while reading it, one comes to the realization that it actually deals with the issues of a deteriorating environment that endangers the survival of a beloved river and its nefarious impacts on a great number of people, on generations to come, and on many nations - at the least seven - in Southeast Asia. Ngo The Vinh writes about the building of dams wreaking havoc on the Mekong and their implications. Ngo The Vinh's book is a muffled cry sounding the alarm about a disaster that is about to befall not only Vietnam, our homeland, but the entire region. Nguyen Dinh Toan, Author of Con Duong.

Part travelogue, part history, and part environmental treatise, “Mekong – The Occluding River” is above all else an urgent warning that factors such as pollution, ecological devastation, and the depletion of natural resources are threatening the very existence of the Mekong River. Author Ngo The Vinh combines his vivid travel notes and collection of photographs with a meticulously researched history of the environmental degradation of the Mekong River. Translated from Vietnamese, the best-selling treatise outlines the myriad threats facing the river today. From oil shipments feeding the industrial cities of southwestern China to gigantic hydroelectric dams known as the Mekong Cascades in Yunnan province, China is the worst environmental offender, though the other nations along Mekong’s banks behave no better. From Thailand to Laos to Vietnam, hydroelectric dams that threaten the Mekong and its inhabitants are being built at an alarming rate. To save the Mekong, Ngo The Vinh calls upon all the nations that benefit from its life-giving water to observe the “Spirit of the Mekong” in the implementation of all future development projects. To achieve this end, there must be a concerted and sustained commitment to cooperation and sustainability. At this critical cross-roads, we should remind ourselves of the mantra from Sea World San Diego: “Extinction is forever. Endangered means we still have time.”
