Four Chinese-American siblings make an emotional journey to their ancestral home in this novel from the Nobel and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Good Earth. Dr. Liang is a comfortably well-off professor of Confucian philosophy who fled China because of the government’s crackdown on intellectuals. Now, settled in 1940s New York, he believes in the notion of a pure and unchanging homeland. Under his influence, Liang’s four grown children make the momentous decision to move to China, despite having spent their whole lives in the United States. But as the siblings try in various ways to adjust to a new place and culture, they learn that the definition of home is far different from what they expected. Kinfolk is the involving story of an American family and literary fiction of the highest order. The New York Times–bestselling author of Dragon Seed, China Sky, and many other novels, explores the complexities of immigration, multiculturalism, nationality, and the primordial human longing to find our roots. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Pearl S. Buck including rare images from the author’s estate.

Although Kinfolk is primarily about the Flanery family of Floyd County, Kentucky, it also offers an insightful look at a way of life unique to Appalachian America. Kinfolk is certain to make you laugh, cry, and marvel at the bond that unites this intriguing family. It describes in great detail what it was like to farm steep hillsides and mountaintops without the aid of mechanized equipment; it illustrates the sport of foxhunting as was performed by mountain men during the middle of the twentieth century; it provides a historical look at significant gun battles between feuding families; but perhaps most importantly, it provides a genealogical chart showing how the Flanery/Flannery family is related to the Dinguses, the Salisburys, the Halberts, the Crisps, the Hicks, the Stephenses and just about every other family in southeastern Kentucky. The author has meshed prose, poetry, and pictures into an informational and entertaining book chronicling his family's history. It is a must read for anyone who is related to the Flanerys or who is from Floyd County, Kentucky. It is also recommended to anyone who is interested in learning what it was like growing up in that part of Appalachia before the advent of four-lane highways and modern communication systems.

In The Claims of Kinfolk, Dylan Penningroth uncovers an extensive informal economy of property ownership among slaves and sheds new light on African American family and community life from the heyday of plantation slavery to the "freedom generation" of the 1870s. By focusing on relationships among blacks, as well as on the more familiar struggles between the races, Penningroth exposes a dynamic process of community and family definition. He also includes a comparative analysis of slavery and slave property ownership along the Gold Coast in West Africa, revealing significant differences between the African and American contexts. Property ownership was widespread among slaves across the antebellum South, as slaves seized the small opportunities for ownership permitted by their masters. While there was no legal framework to protect or even recognize slaves' property rights, an informal system of acknowledgment recognized by both blacks and whites enabled slaves to mark the boundaries of possession. In turn, property ownership--and the negotiations it entailed--influenced and shaped kinship and community ties. Enriching common notions of slave life, Penningroth reveals how property ownership engendered conflict as well as solidarity within black families and communities. Moreover, he demonstrates that property had less to do with individual legal rights than with constantly negotiated, extralegal social ties.
