On November 3, 1914, Mei Fuh was born in China to two American teachers. Here is Edith Schaeffer's lively memoir of her first five years growing up in southern China. With Mei Fuh we walk along the busy city wall, taste buffalo cream on toast, feel cool breezes from Amah's bamboo fan, inhale the sweet fragrance of oiled paper umbrellas, and hear the deep, sad sound of the ship's horn as it pulls out of Shanghai Harbor, carrying Mei Fuh to her new life in America. Mei Fuh is Edith Schaeffer's poignant tribute to the China of her early years - and a vivid evocation of a curious young girl learning to find herself in her family and in the world.
