Preview by Publisher Blurb

In China, an entire generation's most formative years took place in remote rural areas when city kids were sent to the countryside to become rusticated youth and partake in Mao's mandated Great Leap Forward. In an inspiring tale, Emei Burrell shares her mother's true experience during the Countryside Movement of the early 1970s, which sought to increase agricultural outreach and spur social and ideological change amongst youth. Burell's stunning illustrations honor her mother's courage, strength, and determination during a decade of tremendous political upheaval, where millions of lives were lost, families were torn apart, and an entire generation grew up in an era of self-discovery.
