Chapter Summary

This section of the book Life in a Kam Village in Southwest China, 1930-1949 contains photographs such as those depicting, a road leading out of Xiangye towards Taiyong, vegetable garden with a grand view, Harrow, and Loom. Two aspects of Life in a Kam Village stand out as rare by comparison with other Chinese accounts: firstly the candid way in which the author treats relationships between minority Kam and majority Han Chinese; secondly the openness with which he discusses embarrassing features within the village culture itself relating, for example, to apparent estrangement between husbands and wives, or to derogatory words delivered by parents to their children.
