Description

In October 1934, the Chinese Communist Army found itself facing complete annihilation, surrounded by hundreds of thousands of Nationalist soldiers. Rather than surrender, 86,000 Communists embarked on an epic journey, the likes of which had never been seen before. Their trek would eventually cover 6,000 miles over 370 days. But that's not even the most incredible part of the story: of those 86,000 who began what would become known as "The Long March," only 30 were women. Often under enemy fire, they crossed highland swamps that claimed dozens of lives; climbed treacherous Tibetan peaks; scrambled over bridges made of nothing more than chains, and trudged through the hot sands of the western deserts. Fewer than 10,000 of the original group would survive, but remarkably most of the women would live to tell the tale. Dean King's UNBOUND tells the amazing story of these thirty women: their love, friendship, and survival. This is truly a journey like none other, told by a master of adventure narrative.
