  • Description or summary of the book: Born on the eve of China's Cultural Revolution, Ping Fu was separated from her family at the age of eight. She grew up fighting hunger and humiliation and shielding her younger sister from the teenagers in Mao's Red Guard. At twenty-five, she found her way to the United States; her only resources were $80 and a few phrases of English. Yet Ping persevered, and the hard-won lessons of her childhood guided her to success in her new homeland. Aided by her well-honed survival instincts, a few good friends, and the kindness of strangers, she grew into someone she never thought she'd be-a strong, independent, entrepreneurial leader. 'She tells her story with intelligence, verve and a candor that is often heart-rending.'-The Wall Street Journal 'This well-written tale of courage, compassion, and undaunted curiosity reveals the life of a genuine hero.'-Booklist (starred review) 'Her success at the American Dream is a real triumph.'-The New York Post
