Treeless Mountain is a poignant tale about the importance of family bonds. It centers on Jin, a six-year-old, who lives with her mother and little sister Bin in a small apartment in Seoul, South Korea. Early in the story, their mother decides to look for their estranged father and leaves her children with their alcoholic aunt. After their mother fails to return, they’re forced to move to their grandparent’s farm.
These unfortunate events engender a coming of age in Jin. Although she has lost her parents, she is inspired by her grandmother’s work ethic and determination, in taking care of them and the farm. She realizes that staying close and taking care of her younger sister is the best way to get over the hurt of being abandoned. Click Read More for additional information.
