The Good Earth. The Bestselling Epic of a China Th&hellip by Pearl S. Buck
5.0 out of 5 stars an oldie but a goldie, 29 Nov 2013
although published nearly a hundred years ago now... this is a wonderful insight to China pre revolution from someone who grew up there and spoke fluent chinese.... I expected it to be a bit dated... but in the event I couldn't put it down.... life for a common farmer at that time and in that place was hard beyond any experience that any westerner is ever likely to have.... the choices worse than Sophie's Choice.... buy it and read it... and be glad that you live in modern times and in a democracy that although not perfect will nevertheless not see you eating tree bark and mud in times of want
