Leaving Mother Lake, is the extraordinary story of Yang Erche Namu - a girl growing up in the borderlandas between Tibet and China, who left her remarkable childhood behind for the bright lights of Shanghai and singing stardom. Namu's home is an area so primitive that durign the Cultural Revolution the Red Guards arrived and left because there was nothing to destroy. it is a place known as the 'Country of Daughters' because of its matriarchal society: there is no word for father; property is passed on from mother to daughter; women choose lovers for as logn s the like; and men mostly sleep in the stables. When Namu was a small child, her mother tried to give her away three times because she would not stop crying. Each time she was returned. As she grew up, she clashed repeatedly with her equally fierce mother... until the arrival of a Chinese official, looking for talented singers.
