Author: Siao-Yu.; Yutang Lin; Raymond Frank Piper; Robert C North
Publisher: London : Souvenir Press, 1974.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Biography : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Few world figures can have so extra-ordinary a tale to tell of their childhood and young manhood as Mao Tse-Tung: it is a life story that belongs to a poet or a philosopher rather than a political leader, and it has already the quality of myth. But Sia-Yu's story is no myth. He was there. He and Mao were beggars.
