Colors of the Mountain : The youngest of five children, Da Chen was born in 1962 in rural China. Because his family belongs to the landlord class, they lose everything during the Cultural Revolution: Chen's father and grandfather are publicly humiliated, beaten, and periodically taken off to labor camps; his older siblings are forced to leave school and work in the rice fields. Feisty and smart, Chen joins a gang of young troublemakers, but he also befriends an elegant, older Chinese woman who teaches him English - and opens the door to a new life.
