 About the Book 

When a long-lasting drought threatens life in her village, Ah-mei offers her own life as a sacrifice so that the people may have water. An old man places a statue as her substitute, so she can continue to live happily with her family.A classic example of the Chinese value of sacrificing ones self for the benefit of the group, and thus a well-loved tale in Chinese culture. Yang Ming-Yi has created beautiful woodcuts printed on rice paper and painted with watercolor and ink to bring this touching legend to life.
