Praise

“Here for the first time is the story of China’s 1949 Revolution, told by a young woman of Shanghai who abandoned the comforts of a middle-class life to join the movement to organize peasants in China’s remote interior—a dramatic, soul-wracking, epic endeavor which laid the foundation for the regime of Mao Zedong. Human, poignant, and enthralling, it is, in a way, the Chinese equivalent of Sholokhov’s Quiet Flows the Don.
—Harrison Salisbury
 
“For an eighteen-year-old daughter of a well-to-do Shanghai business family to join the revolution was itself a great leap. Volunteering to help carry out land reform in a tiny farm village in China’s remote and backward Northwest, she found herself plunged into a world of conflict, clashing loyalties, and selfish interests. Straightforward, vivid, and perceptive, this non-propagandistic account by a young Chinese participant in the violent years of China’s liberation from rural feudalism is an absorbing story.”
—John S. Service
