The affectionate biography of the author's mother, Carie Stulting Sydenstricker (1856-1921), that "vigorous and lusty" woman, in the words of her daughter, who was so little understood by her husband. This book was an instant success on its release in 1936 and temporarily repaired the beleaguered finances of the John Day Company (whose president, Richard Walsh, the author had married). With its companion volume, Fighting Angel, about her father, they were released as a boxed edition under the title, The Flesh and the Spirit. Pearl Sydenstricker Buck (1893-1973), Nobel and Pulitzer laureate, was a major figure in shaping American knowledge of and attitudes toward China in the first part of the twentieth century. As her biographer Peter Conn says of the biographies of her parents, they, "are monuments to the story of Protestant evangelism in China, a vital but neglected chapter in American cultural history." (p.188). Very Good.
