About the Author
Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973) was a bestselling and Nobel Prize-winning author. Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women's rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency. In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.
Reviews
"A beautifully written novel that follows one family's dreams and nightmares across a changing Chinese landscape. And, Oprah says, 'It's also juicy as all get out!'"-Oprah.com "A comment upon the meaning and tragedy of life as it is lived in any age in any quarter of the globe." -The New York Times "One of the most important and revealing novels of our time." -Pittsburgh Post Gazette "One need never have lived in China or know anything about the Chinese to understand it or respond to its appeal." -Boston Transcript
