Dragon Seed is moving. It is not an easy book to read. A novel of China Today says the line under the title on the cover of the book. Today is way back in 1942 - during World War II.
Pearl Buck makes you live thru the times of war from the eyes of a Chinese Farmer and his family. It is about war - people in times of war, women in times of war, atrocities in times of war, food and lack of it in times of war, and hope in times of war. Some of the scenes in this book will be with me all my life.
