Read full description of the books:
Set in twentieth century China, this is a moving and evocative story. The older generation of the Wang family is rigidly set in the ways of ancient China: the father has several concubines and demands and receives unquestioned reverence from all of his family. But the family faces many changes that threatens both their traditions and their lives. This is Pearl Buck's first novel and begins developing themes she writes on throughout her work.
In her acceptance speech upon receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature, Pearl Buck said, "The mind of my own country and of China, my foster country, are alike in many ways, but above all, in our common love of freedom". "East Wind: West Wind" embodies this love of, and struggle for, freedom.

Born in Hillsboro, West Virginia, Buck was the daughter of missionaries and spent much of the first half of her life in China, where many of her books are set. In 1934, civil unrest in China forced Buck back to the United States.

In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.
