Nonfiction. "The faces and voices so powerfully captured by Jeff Gillenkirk, a writer, and James Motlow, a photographer, in their oral history. testify to a dramatic shift in outlook and expectation. For this aging group of Chinese agricultural workers in the 1980s, the bitterness has passed. Their stories of back-breaking labor, social ostracism and grinding poverty are laced with sadness but also with pride." -New York Times Book Review
