Pearl S. Buck
By Erin Horner
  

1     As an author, Pearl S. Buck contributed many great pieces of literature to society. As a caring person, however, she arguably contributed even more. Mrs. Buck cared deeply about the people of China. She was also passionate about orphan care. She lived a very full life and helped people from all over the world.
 
2     Pearl S. Buck was born in West Virginia on June 26, 1892. Her parents were missionaries to China. Three of Pearl's siblings died in China when they were young. This made Pearl's parents decide to return to the United States when it was time for her to be born. When Pearl was three months old her family left the U.S. and moved back to China. Pearl was reared there. She learned Chinese from her tutor and English from her mother. She also learned about Chinese traditions and culture. Pearl fell in love with China and its people.
 
3     In 1911 Pearl returned to the United States. She came back to attend college. After earning her degree she returned to China. There she met a man named John Buck. Like her parents, he was a missionary in China. In 1917 the couple married. Pearl then began teaching. She taught English literature at the University of Nanking. In 1920 Pearl gave birth to a daughter. She and John named her Carol. Carol was born with a disease that left her mentally handicapped. In 1925 the couple adopted another daughter.
