"This is surely the warmest, most human document that has ever come out of China. . . . The report of her life and labors has the lasting symbolic quality of literature."-The American Journal of Sociology
"No recent book has better portrayed the common man in China. . . . This short autobiography is right in description of Chinese Social customs. . . . In writing this book, Ida Pruitt has rendered a great service to the Chinese people. For she has accomplished ore than sociologists and novelists in their treatises and fiction can do. She has written a personal story through which the spirit of the common people of China is vividly and humanly revealed."-Pacific Affairs
"This book opens a window into the Chinese world. Although the story is of one Chinese woman, the events of her life reach out into the experiences of many other people. They are a part of that wider social and imaginary world from which the Chinese draw meaning to their life."-The Far Eastern Quarterly
