WOW! this amazing memoir of a life lived on the edge of the world.the authors words describe a childhood that most of us would not understand but just might envy.
this society of the Moso people in China is a matriarchal society and girls are favored over boys. all the property goes down the female side of the family. they also do not believe in marriage,they consider it a backward practice. this is a wonderful colorful book that puts you right in the middle of things at the edge of the world!
Because the book takes place in a foreign country in the back of beyond where government has a more difficult time reaching, makes it a lure to me and very interesting. I like to read how things are done in these places,food, beliefs, religion.... Interesting.
