Good Earth (The) Focus Guide
The Good Earth
by Pearl S. Buck
This is the story of Wang Lung’s adult life from the day of his marriage to his old age. We watch him develop as a young, hard-working man, filled with dreams and guided by tradition and principles through life struggles of poverty, deception and greed.
Barbara’s Notes: This is not a “feel good” story, but definitely a must read for students about to embark on life after high school. It provides food for thought as to what makes a successful, happy existence at a time when young adults are making decisions that will affect their future.
