In 1986, Jean Fritz went to China and talked to survivors of the Long March. It is from their recollections and her own broad, personal knowledge of Chinese history that she has written one of the most compelling accounts of the incredible 6,000 mile journey across China made by the Communist Army in 1934 and 1935.---from the publisher
