When Diana Lu was three years old, her world turned upside down. China's Cultural Revolution was under way, and Diana's family was forced to leave their comfortable, educated, middle-class life in the city. They relocated to an impoverished coal-mining village at the edge of the Gobi Desert, where they were to be "re-educated." Life in that remote place was a constant struggle against hunger, cold, and fear.

I wish I had read this book when I was a young girl. Diana's determination and hard work took her so far in accomplishments, friendships, skills, financial independence and wisdom. I think she is more than a little gifted. She is very special and I see some of her characteristics in my granddaughter. I loved Daughter of the Yellow River also because Diana gave me some insight into to thinking and culture of the Chinese people in a way that I can now feel a closer tie with them. Inspiring is the operative word.
Thank you Diana for your energy and driving motivation to help and inspire others.
