The present volume consists of nine stories by Duanmu Hongliang which evidence his ardor for the Manchurian landscape and people. His "native soil" fiction style, which features the homeland with poetic realist touches, is shared by many modern Chinese writers such as Shen Congwen.

Duanmu Hongliang (1912–1996) was one of the most talented writers in the modern period of Chinese literature. His poetry, prose, painting, and calligraphy are all works of art, and each has its unique style. None of his contemporaries can match the brilliance of his descriptions of the vastness and the wild nature of the plains and desert of northern China, as well as the spectacular images of nature in his early literary works. Some of his short stories from the 1940s remain as lasting literary treasures.

Howard Goldblatt is Research Professor of Chinese at The University of Notre Dame, USA and Haili Kong is Professor of Chinese Language, Literature and Film at Swarthmore College, USA.
