This is a fictionized version of the life of Pearl S.Buck written by an author who experienced the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Much of the story is historically correct. Pearl's Chinese friends were a composite of the actual people from Buck's life. I have read "The Good Earth" and greatly enjoyed it. Buck gives you a real feeling of the Chinese peasant. This is a well written story and I would greatly recommend to others who enjoy the writtings of Buck.
