Formatted Contents Note: Preface: Rediscovering Pearl Buck -- Missionary childhood -- New worlds -- Winds of change -- The Good Earth -- An exile's return -- The prize -- Wartime -- Losing battles -- Pearl Sydenstricker.
Summary, etc.: In this richly illustrated and meticulously crafted narrative, Conn recounts Buck's life in absorbing detail, tracing the parallel course of American and Chinese history and politics through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This "cultural biography" thus offers a dual portrait: of Buck, a figure greater than history cares to remember, and of the era she helped to shape.
