Xue Tao's captivating memoir unfolds like a finely crafted tapestry, intricately woven from the threads of childhood memories, each delicately entwined with the presence of a cherished goat. In 49 succinct and evocative vignettes, where joy and melancholy coalesce, we catch glimpses of rural life in northeastern China through the lens of a young boy.  His elegant prose paints a vibrant picture of endless fields roamed alongside his four-legged confidante. Together, they chase rainbows in the setting sun, tumble through haystacks, explore secrets in wooded hills, and forge friendships with countless creatures nestled in the mountains. To the boy, the little goat is a gentle and noble creature. Their bond, wordless yet profound, brims with a simple tenderness.
