Written after the Japanese invasion of July, 1937 Buck asks for support for the Chinese who are suffering in the war. She notes that The US gave Japan $11 million during her earthquake of 1923 but that the US has not sent even $1 million to China during this war. She notes that "ninety cents of American money supports a Chinese life for a whole month." The Chinese value our friendship and return it. Yet actually we have done almost nothing for them in this crises of suffering. " She was raised in China and was the founder of the Pearl S. Buck Foundation to assist fatherless half-Chinese children in Asia. Bookseller Inventory #
