Did you ever hear about Mao's era from a countryside resident, a beautiful village girl? I reckon the answer is no. Meinia was a pretty and compassionate village girl in Xishuangbanna, China. Responding to Mao's call, five members of the so-called Zhi-qing ( educated youth or high school students and graduates from cities) came to her village. She and other villagers did their best to help the Zhi-qing, but these not-educated-nor-useful Zhi-qing inflicted huge and lasting hurt and pains on her and the villagers, !! Filling up with songs of young people, and full of wisdom of an oriental minority culture, this is a bright love-story book for readers of all ages. This is also an informative book for readers who have interest in the diversity of Chinese culture, and who are planning a visit to southern China. The Author was born in a small village in southern China and had been living there for 17 years, most in Mao's era.
