Most of my fellow villagers had moved to cities. The village lanes were overgrown with weeds. Some houses had collapsed. Our house still stood, however, even though it was made of adobe and wood. Father still lived in the house, which seemed as old as he was. My name is Chao. I'm an ordinary person from a poor mountain village in northwest China.Like most other human beings, I often ponder: Why do I exist? How should I live? What is the meaning of my life? I believe my life is not worthless. Everyone should be appreciated and each of us should be valued as a wonderful individual. This is why I wrote this book - to record my life directly and share with others the narrative of my life - to provide a way for others to know another human being's life story.
