Reader's note

Add a classic vintage Penguin paperback to your collection with this 1960 edition of The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. This book has been deservedly popular for nearly thirty years, and remains as true today as when it was written, for the vast majority of Chinese are still 'the voiceless ones' who cultivate the land. This is the life story of Wang-Lung, who began as a poor Chinese peasant marries to the slave O-lan. 'Such people are fundamental not only to China but to all the world.' Their family life is based on the good earth which is their livelihood: failure of crops means starvation; good crops mean prosperity.
