內容簡介 A thousand hills lay bare to the sky, and half of every hill was wheat and half was fallow ground; andall of them, with the shallow valleys between, seemed big and strange and isolated. The beauty ofthem was austere, as if the hand of man had been held back from making green his home site, as ifthe immensity of the task had left no time for youth and freshness.
