When O-lan, a servant girl, marries the peasant Wang Lung, she toils tirelessly through four pregnancies for their family's survival. Reward at first is meagre, but there is sustenance in the land - until the famine comes. Half-starved, the family joins thousands of peasants to beg on the city streets. It seems that all is lost, until O-lan's desperate will to survive returns them home with undreamt of wealth. But they have betrayed the earth from which true wealth springs, and the family's money breeds only mistrust, deception - and heartbreak for the woman who had saved them. THE GOOD EARTH is a riveting family saga and story of female sacrifice - a classic of twentieth-century literature.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

In the reign of the last emperor a humble woman married a peasant man. Together they began an epic jouney...
O-lan is a homely servant girl in the village's greatest house. When she is taken as a wife for Wang Lung, a simple Chinese peasant, she toils tirelessly through four pregnancies for their family's survival. Reward at first is meagre, but there is hope in their work, sustenance in the land. Until the famine comes.
Forced to flee or die of starvation, the family arrives in the city, joining thousands of peasants to beg on the streets. It seems that all is lost, until a combination of good luck and O-lan's will to survive conspires to return them to their home with undreamt of wealth. But they have betrayed the earth that had previously sustained them, and their money breeds only mistrust and deception amongst her sons - and heartbreak for the woman who had saved them.
Set against a China on the brink of change, THE GOOD EARTH is a riveting family saga and story of female sacrifice. Beloved by millions of readers, Pearl S. Buck's brilliant novel is a classic of twentieth century literature.
