In their remote mountain village, Li-yan and her family align their lives around the seasons and the farming of tea. For the Akha people, ensconced in ritual and routine, life goes on as it has for generations—until a stranger appears at the village gate in a jeep, the first automobile any of the villagers has ever seen.
A powerful story about circumstances, culture, and distance, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lanepaints an unforgettable portrait of a little known region and its people and celebrates the bond of family.
