Rebecca | 4 comments The book description for this edition of Dragon Seed by Pearl S. Buck contains a description for a different novel of hers, Imperial Woman.

Here is the description from the back of my edition from Pocket Books:
Ling Tan, a Chinese peasant farmer, had a loyal, affectionate wife and three strong sons. For many years the rich land brought comfort and security to his family. Then the enemy invaded their village and the old life was shattered. A sick woman was raped and murdered. Foreign soldiers plundered Ling Tan's farm. They ravished his youngest son who went to hide his shame in the hills. They killed his daughter-in-law. In grief and desperation, Ling Tan and his family began to fight back. They organized the resistance movement, built a secrete arsenal--and killed the enemy whenever they could! Written with compassion and insight characteristic of the author of The Good Earth, this story powerfully evokes the brutality and senselessness of war.

Rebecca | 4 comments Sure. It's an older book, so it just has a Standard Book Number 671-78269-X.
