Reward at first is meagre, but there is sustenance in the land - until the famine comes. Half-starved, the family joins thousands of peasants to beg on the city streets.

Lovely story

by margaret b on Aug 1, 2011

A book about a Chinese farmer and his family and his path through life, includes some Chinese traditions but otherwise could be a universal story of life, its hardships and its joys.

Pearl Buck

by Mary O on Mar 3, 2011

Pearl Buck was born in my state of West Virginia and I've read her books since I was a little girl. I have always wanted to go to China, and its because of Pearl Buck and her writings of China.

It's a hard life!

by kalessin on Mar 1, 2010

This book was exceptionally written and easy to read. It was difficult to read, though as you delve into these characters and feel so much sympathy for them. It truly makes you realize how blessed you are, not to have to make the sacrifices that these people did. This book draws you in and makes you ask questions of yourself that may be hard to answer!
