From the TALK series, Living with the Land. Discussion Leader: Sandra Wiechert.
Wang Lung, a poor peasant who "makes good" by caring about and acquiring land, has unfailing help from his wife, but values her only for her labor and sons she supplies. Sons, brought up in an industrializing China, stray from their father's commitment to the land and to older values. (385 pp.)
