In 1938, Pearl Buck was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for her epic portrayal of Chinese peasant life and for the biographies of her parents. She was the first American woman to be awarded both the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes for literature. The Good Earth, was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1932 and remained on the bestseller list for 21 months. It was also developed into an Oscar Award-winning film in 1937. In addition to her many literary achievements, Pearl Buck was a driving force in humanitarian causes.

Pearl S. Buck: A Life, A Legacy

We are proud of this documentary and many folks who have seen it are quite emotionally moved for which we are gratified and humbled. We wanted to do justice to Pearl Buck—to bring this literary icon to life, humanize her, cheer for her and cry with her and ultimately make you a devoted fan of hers. You can judge the final result for yourself because the DVD is now available worldwide on Amazon and here in Bucks County at the Pearl S. Buck house gift shop. I'd recommend a trip there to see her home as well as meet the folks who are keeping her legacy vibrant and alive. It's well worth the trip!

I read her books in my early life in Portuguese and thankfully years later in English. Being an immigrant of Japanese origin living in impoverished Brazil, her ability in describing us Asians is difficult to ascertain with such precision. She was also as part of my childhood days as she is now part of my years of maturity. Simply the best writer the world ever knew.” -M. Oliveira
