LEGACIES: A Chinese Mosaic. - Livres de poche

1994, ISBN: 9780449906200

Edition reliée, ID: 29150224

Fine Line Productions Inc, Truckee, California, U.S.A, 1994. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near Fine. Illustrator: Prosor, Larry. In ten years of travel throughout Nevada, I have explored its deserts, mountains, cities and small towns and have met the independent, resilient people who live here. Even with the diversity of livelihood - from rancher to casino owner, small businesses to government workers, I've found most share a genuine pride in the state and a passion for wide-open spaces. This can be a harsh environment with extremes of temperature and terrain. But, throughout Nevada I have seen some of nature's finet work. Some of these wonders are breathtaking, while others simply make me feel at peace with the world. It is my hope that this book will show Nevada as a serene, sometimes primitive land with precious natural settings that should be preserved for the enjoyment of our children and their children, rather than as a wasteland to be exploited as a digging and dumping ground. Nevada is one of my favorite places. Let's hope that we learn to manage this unique environment so that future generations will be able to enjoy it as I have. - Larry Prosor This book is fully illustrated with stunningly beautiful photos, and essays to enhance them. 175 pages. The binding is grey cloth with gold lettering. The jacket has a tiny tear at the top near the spine, and is a bit bent at the top. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. . Illustrator: Prosor, Larry.

Legacies: A Chinese Mosaic - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9780449906200

ID: 978044990620

Urgent and timeless, Legacies brings us closer than we have ever been to penetrating the great conundrum of China m the twentieth century. It could only have been written by Bette Bao Lord -- born in China, raised in America, author of the bestselling novel Spring Moon, wife of a former American ambassador to China, resident in Beijing during the "China Spring" of 1989. Lord''s unique web of relationships and her sensitive insight have enabled her to observe Chinese life both high and low, Communist and dissident, intellectual and ordinary.Lord interweaves her own story, and that of her clansmen, with the voices of men and women who recall the tumultuous experience of the last fifty years, and the legacy of the Cultural Revolution. In precise, subtle prose, Lord explores the reality of Red Guards and reeducation camps, of friends and families severed by political disgrace, and captures the individual voices of those caught up in them: the seven-year-old girl with a heart full of hate for her father; the journalist whose girlfriend believes the Party newspapers, not him; the imprisoned scholar who hid his writings in his quilt for years; the anti-revolutionary who tells his bitter story in a vein of high farce. All bear heartbreaking witness to the surreal quality of Chinese society today -- and to the astonishing resilience, humor, and heroic equanimity of the Chinese spirit.
