Synopsis:
Pearl S. Buck's epic
Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of a China that was
-- now in a Contemporary Classics
edition.


Though more than sixty years have passed
since this remarkable novel won the Pulitzer
Prize, it has retained its popularity and become
one of the great modern classics. "I can only
write what I know, and I know nothing but China,
having always lived there," wrote Pearl Buck. In
The Good Earth she presents a graphic
view of a China when the last emperor reigned
and the vast political and social upheavals of
the twentieth century were but distant rumblings
for the ordinary people. This moving, classic
story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his
selfless wife O-lan is must reading for those
who would fully appreciate the sweeping changes
that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese
people during this century.

Nobel Prize winner Pearl S. Buck traces the
whole cycle of life: its terrors, its passions,
its ambitions and rewards. Her brilliant novel
-- beloved by millions of readers -- is a
universal tale of the destiny of man.
