Overview

Last Hill of Arirang is the story of Yu Sun Yi, a Korean woman of irrepressible spirit and strength, and the men, her grandfather, father, husband and sons, whom she defied, dominated, comforted and loved throughout overwhelming political events. Beginning in 1910 with the annexation of Korea by Japan and continuing through the brutal suppression that followed, she experiences the turmoil of cultural change and devastating war.

Dreams of her childhood seem impossible to attain. In her time women are destined to be "inside people" Yet her strong will guides Sun Yi and her family through years of imprisonment, banishment, and even loss of home and livelihood.

Here is an epic story of one family, entwined with fascinating details of traditional customs in the land long known as "The Hermit Nation," and of an indomitable country that will not be conquered.
