Product Description

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.

Format: Paperback
An absolute and thoroughly interesting saga and drama of the sons of Wan Lung. The book mostly follows the life of the departed son, Wang the Tiger. His mission is to have his own army and a son of his own. Pearl S. Buck skillfully details Wang the Tiger's desires, emotions and thoughts. Wang the Tiger removes his son from his sisters and mother to ensure the lad's education and guidance & preparation to follow Wang the Tiger's footsteps. This book is as excellent reading as "The Good Earth" and completely to the end!

Buck does an excellent job of providing a story of how men's inner desires and outer actions mold their lives and affect others. The sons begotten by Wang Lung the Farmer continue their lives giving us a window on this period in China, but the motives and events are universal.

always realistic and warm in the sense that you are close to a family. The struggle of the grandson is very much like the inner battles wang lung had to contend with in the first book. love is always found and always conquers.

A worthy member of the trilogy. I had problems with the download at first and thought I was going to miss out on this one. But a thorough re-charge of the Kindle ( and a bit of a rest), and there it was!A wonderful read.

Having loved the Good Earth I was looking forward to reading the other two parts and this, the second book in the trilogy was nearly as good as the first. Worth reading if you enjoyed the original.
