Buck would spend a great portion of her
In 1938, Pearl S. Buck is honored with the Nobel Prize for Literature for the Good Earth and for her biographies of her parents. She is still one of only two American women to do so - the other being Toni Morrison.
Chelsea House of Publishers, 1985.
In 1934, because of conditions in China, and also to be closer to Richard Walsh and her daughter Carol, whom she had placed in an institution in New Jersey, Pearl moved permanently to the US. She bought an old farmhouse, Green Hills Farm, in Bucks County, PA. She and Richard adopted six more children over the following years. Green Hills Farm is now on the Registry of Historic Buildings; fifteen thousand people visit each year.
While her literary career was taking off, Pearls personal life was changing. The Bucks left China in 1934 after conditions there made life unsafe for Americans. She would never return. Her marriage with Lossing Buck basically ended in 1933. After their divorce in 1935, Pearl married her publisher, Richard Walsh. She purchased Green Hills Farm in Pennsylvania. Walsh and Buck eventually adopt 6 more children. She continued to write fiction and non-fiction.
The Bucks' first child, Carol, was born in 1921; a victim of PKU, she proved to be profoundly retarded. Furthermore, because of a uterine tumor discovered during the delivery, Pearl underwent a hysterectomy. In 1925, she and Lossing adopted a baby girl, Janice. The Buck marriage was unhappy almost from the beginning, but would last for eighteen years.
