    I'm reading, on this moment, a very very good book from this extraordinary writer woman, The Angry Wife. The history is about two brothers who had fought on opposig sides on Civil War – 1864 .

    Hard to believe her and her family were christians. Most white christians would hate being in a swimming pool with a chinese person, let alone live in their culture and learn their language.

    If you noticed how Pearl keeps her handbag close to her knees.  This is due to modesty.. which I recall I did due to the short dress which may rise up.  She is so sweet.

    I read her stories since I was a young girl.  Loved the story "Good Earth" people should read it because it's got an interesting point of view on family.  In some ways
    it may not be to others but to me I was surprised at the ending of the book.  Movie,
    they made it more romantic.. despite all that went on.

    The birthplace of Pearl S. Buck is in the tiny community of Hillsboro, West Virginia. This is in Pocahontas County, amidst beautiful farm country.

    She is right in the end… communism in China is indeed moderating.

    How interesting. Pearl uses the term Asian, while Merv uses Oriental.

    Pearl S. Buck is the best of what humanity produces: someone who takes responsibility for others.
