Lost pages of Buck's 'Good Earth' return to PA

The long-lost handwritten manuscript of Pearl S. Buck's classic novel "The Good Earth" is set to go on display next month at the late author's home outside Philadelphia. The Pearl S. Buck House, in Hilltown Township, will display the 400 hand-edited pages for six months, beginning March 3. It will be the first time since May 1930 that the manuscript will be reunited with the desk, chair and typewriter that Buck used when she wrote the novel, said Donna Rhodes, a curator at Buck's home. - AP
