The Good Earth from Kimmie

The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck

1932 Pulitzer Prize

"The Good Earth" opens on Wang Lung's wedding day. He has taken a slave girl from the village's weathiest family. The story follows the family through good years on their farm and drought that forces them into the city. It's a story about one man's hope for his children and the future. I read it last year and liked it. I highly recommend it.
