June 28, 2007|From the Associated Press

The FBI has recovered the long-lost manuscript of Pearl S. Buck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel "The Good Earth," which had been missing for more than 40 years. The original typed manuscript had gone missing from Buck's family farm in the Philadelphia suburb of Perkasie around 1966.

It turned up earlier this month when it was consigned to a Philadelphia auction house, which notified authorities, FBI spokeswoman Jerri Williams said.
