"This is a brilliant story about Liberated China from the pen of the well-known New Zealand writer, Rewi Alley. It deals with his recent experiences in Kiangsi, central China, where he travelled extensively in 1961, checking on the result of the early period of the Leap Forward policy. Rewi knows this old revolutionary base inside out, having lived there in pre-liberation days under the Kuomintang, when hunger, corruption, floods, and feudal exploitation devastated the countryside. It is a follow-up to his popular book 'China's Hinterland in the Leap Forward' published in 1961" - "Catalogue of Chinese Literature in English"
