More About Pearl S. Buck & Mark Buehner
Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973) was a bestselling and Nobel Prize-winning author. Her classic novel The Good Earth (1931) was awarded a Pulitzer Prize and William Dean Howells Medal. 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. Throughout her life she worked in support of civil and women's rights, and established Welcome House, the first international, interracial adoption agency. In addition to her highly acclaimed novels, Buck wrote two memoirs and biographies of both of her parents. For her body of work, Buck received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938, the first American woman to have done so. She died in Vermont.

Beautiful Jan 7, 2008
This is a wonderful story for any Christmas book collection. I like the example of gifts coming from the heart and out of a spirit of love, not the mall. In a season manipulated with marketing, this story reminds me of the joy and simplicity of giving.
A classic Dec 14, 2007
Does not disappoint. I have a 2 yr. old and 4 yr. old and they enjoyed the story and illustrations. It'll mean more to them as they get older. Helps them understand the farm life of their grandparents. Highly recommend.

I ordered this book for a friend who was unfamiliar with this site. It was given as a gift for Christmas to her father. After using this site and receiving the merchandise, she was very pleased and will be using this site in the future. As for the book, it was a treasure to her father and it in her words is sure to be a family treasure and tradition at Christmas time. She encouraged me to seek a copy for my family and myself. this site has it all.

Pearl S. Buck does it again...catches the essence of human caring! I gave this book to a family of friends who are milk farmers. My friend is a new grandmother, and she loved it! I just couldn't keep it for myself!
