Bold Plum: with the Guerillas in China's War against Japan

ByHsiao Li Lindsay

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Hsiao Li Lindsay is a master storyteller and a historian's dream. She offers a day-by-day account of flight from Beijing [in 1941] with Japanese troops in pursuit, years with the Communist guerrillas in North China, childbirth on the trail, and refuge in Yenan. Bold Plum shows us the communist movement in all its precarious local variation. Lindsay's keen eye and prodigious memory are a gift to us all. Gail Hershatter, Professor of History, University of California, Santa Cruz, USA./ This is a rare item. Bold Plum has all the virtues of a remarkably sharp authorial memory and a story line that ranges from tragically massacred peasant villages to living intimately with Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, Zhu De, Lin Biao, and the whole gang. Jerome Silbergeld, Professor of Chinese Art and Film, Princeton University, USA./ I just couldn't put Bold Plum down. Her courage and the choices she had to make are amazing. Fatima Jibrell, Goldman Environmental Prize 2002./ Hsiao Li lives in Beijing, China.
