    This American Library Association Notable Book of 1955 tells the story of a peasant woman in India, married as a child bride to a tenant farmer, working with her husband to wrest a living from land ravaged by droughts, monsoons, and insects. Through years of poverty and disaster, she sees one of her infants die, her daughter become a prostitute, her sons leave for jobs she distrusts--and somehow she survives.
