"The Long March: The Untold Story" is a piece of history that took place but wasn't reported by anyone until Harrison Salisbury wrote his book. Salisbury was 75 when he returned to China to talk to people who marched back in October of 1934. Most of the boys and some girls who went on the 6,000 mile/march were peasants.
