Woodbine House is proud to bring back into print a classic in disability literature. Written by the Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning author of The Good Earth and many other books, this personal account broke a national taboo when it was originally published in 1950. Buck's inspiring account of her struggle to help and understand her daughter with mental retardation was the first disclosure of its kind by a public figure. Today, much of the emotional experience Buck so eloquently describes still rings true. New material written especially for this edition amplifies her story and gives the book an important historical perspective.
