Read by George Guidall.
Set in the pre-revolutionary, pre-industrial China of the Manchu Dynasty, the Good Earth is the poignant story of one farmer's desparate fight to survive destiny. Wang Lung joyfully sets out for the city to retrieve his bride, a slave girl from the grerat House of Hwang. Together they build a good life: laboring in the fields, frugally running a household, and raising two healthy sons. But when drought brings hunger and starvation, Wang Lung is forced to move his family from the land he loves and journey to the city in search of work.
