Description
 
Belle Yang (au & il). An engrossing story of Baba’s [Father’s] flight from his native town during China’s civil war, lavishly illustrated with Yang’s vibrant paintings. After the defeat of Japan in WW2, China is plunged into a civil war between Communist & Nationalist forces. The old & respected Manchurian House of Yang is toppled in the chaos, & 17-year-old Baba, the Yangs’ 4th son, is forced to leave Manchuria & his family behind. He journeys to Beijing, the ancient capital, to the great Yellow & Yangtze Rivers, on to Shanghai. When the southern provinces fall to the Communists, Baba is forced to abandon the mainland for the island of Taiwan. By turns poignant & exuberant, this is an unforgettable story of an individual’s struggle to survive in a world torn asunder.
