25 essays written by most well-known female writers in China were selected in this collection. What you will find is that a hard life and a rough environment cannot alter the fact that Chinese women are outstanding. They are plants that move one to tears. They yield no delicate flowers probably because of poverty, dryness, or dust storms, but like cactuses, they tenaciously keep themselves green to prove their worth. Even if a branch is broken off, the wound gives off a fine fragrance.

“I remember that in a discussion abroad of the characteristics of women of different countries, a quite knowledgeable friend said, ‘If you ask me which country’s women are the most outstanding, I say China!’ I asked, ‘Does that mean you like Chinese women most?’ He replied, ‘No, it seems that I’ve never thought of them that way, because Chinese women are also the most sophisticated.'”
