Details
本书涵盖并扩充了纪录片《我从新疆来》主人公的故事,力求从普通人的角度出发,以真实的经历和体验,来展现他们的现状和梦想。作者以“新疆人的中国梦”为主题,通过一个平凡、普通的人和故事,让读者来重新认识新疆人,重新思考人与人之间的关系,了解真实的自己;更希望这些新疆人奋斗拼搏的精神汇聚成积极向上的力量,来鼓舞所有人,远离抱怨和懈怠。书中没有深刻的说教,只有简单的温暖;只有和你我一样,为生活努力、为家人奋斗、为自己的梦想拼搏的普通的中国人。我从哪里来?从新疆来,从全国各地来。我们是命运的共同体,我们是时代的共同体,我们有共同的感受与愿景,我们走在同一条通往幸福的道路上!
This book is an expanded reproduction of the TV documentary I Am from Xinjiang on the Silk Road, which tells the true stories of the lives and dreams of average people from Xinjiang who live and work in all parts of China. With the “Chinese dream of Xinjiangers” as the subject matter, the author makes it possible for readers to reconstruct their image of Xinjiangers, rethink interpersonal relationships and develop a true image of themselves. Moreover, the author expects the pioneering spirit of the protagonists to build into a positive force of great momentum that inspires people and keeps them away from grievances and backsliding. With a simple warmth of its own, the book is not in for profound preaching, but is bent on representing average Chinese nationals who work hard for the sake of their loved ones and fight for a better life as they cling to the dreams that they hold so dear. Where do they or we come from? We come from Xinjiang and all other parts of China. We are a community of shared destiny and of our time. We share the same feelings and vision and we are on the same journey to happiness!

Editor's Recommendation

库尔班江的作品有一种不同寻常的纯净与质朴,他告诉我们的是对于人性的信任与期待,他要告诉我们平凡与不平凡,出色与怎样才更出色,困难与克服困难,相异与相同,还有你自己与你的周围有多少精彩的人生。
王蒙,资深作家,前文化部部长

《我从新疆来II:我从哪里来》是一个大大的问号,但库尔班江一定不是想用这个问号寻找答案,而是为了告知答案:我们都从生活与生命中来。
白岩松,央视访谈节目主持人

库尔班江这些年持之以恒的努力,大家有目共睹!这样的新疆视角,接地气,并不多见!希望有更多的库尔班江,为世界介绍一个更真实、更客观的新疆!
杨锦麟,新闻评论员

记录与尊重,温暖与共融,库尔班江用真实的观点、真诚的态度分享每一个努力生存、用心生活、坚守梦想的人的故事。因生动使人信服,信服就能消释一切隔阂。
崔永元,央视访谈节目主持人

认识库尔班江十年,我看着他从一名求学少年变成了家庭支柱,从一个腼腆青年变成了社会活动家,从一位摄影助理变成了独立运作大型纪录片项目的制片人。这期间,独一不变的,是库尔班江血液里流淌的,对人生、对民族、对世界的热情。
陈晓卿,央视制作人

Kurbanjan has an unusual purity and simplicity about him. He tells us about faith, hope and the good side of human nature; he shows us the ordinary and the extraordinary, the excellent and the outstanding, hardships and victory over hardships, the similar and dissimilar and the fullness of life in you and me and in those around us.
Wang Meng, senior writer, former minister of culture

The book answers the big question of “where I come from,” and yet Kurbanjan does not simply provide a direct answer to the question. Instead, he uses the question to help readers find answers for themselves, as we all come from life and are part of life itself.
Bai Yansong, CCTV talk show host

Kurbanjan’s sustained efforts over the past few years are known to all! His new and down-to-earth perspective is rare and precious. I hope more people like him will rise to the occasion and tell people about Xinjiang in the true and objective light!
Yang Jinlin, news commentator

Kurbanjan’s mirror-like record of real people’s lives and thoughts in their own words describes how they hold onto their dreams and subsist with a positive attitude. Told in a vivid and compelling manner, the stories are convincing enough to help bridge differences and remove dividing walls.”
Cui Yongyuan, CCTV talk show host

Having known Kurbanjan for ten years, I have seen him grow from a juvenile learner to a good breadwinner of his family, from a shy and immature young man to a social activist, and from an assistant photographer to a producer of full-length documentaries. During this changing process, the only thing about him that has not changed is his passionate love of life, of the Chinese nation and of the world as a whole.
Chen Xiaoqing, CCTV producer
