really liked it

This book was a best seller in 1931/32 and has been made into a film. The author was the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938. Treated as a classic book it deals with life in rural China before the revolution. It shows the levels of respect given to individuals in this society. The book begins with the wedding preparations of a poor farmer and ends with his final return to the earth that he loved. In between is a story of family life around the precious earth.
