In the Red Army period, Mao Zedong's wife He Zizhen was a legendary woman. In 1925, 16-year-old He Zizhen became the first female party member and the first woman minister in Yongxin County, Jiangxi Province, and also led the Yongxin riots when she was 17 years old. After the failure of the Revolution, she fought in Jinggangshan, and become the first female soldier in Jinggangshan. There, the 18-year-old He Zizhen met the 34-year-old Mao Zedong and they fell in love and married in 1928. In October 1934, she and Mao took part in the famous Long March.
The long March is a heroic and epic story. Edgar Snow, the earliest reporter of the Long March, in his book "Red Star Over China", said: "One day someone will write this exciting epic." After much investigation I started this bold attempt to use poetic language to describe the Long March.
