KIRKUS REVIEW

The wife of Edgar Snow, herself a journalist of no mean order, became deeply interested in the Korean struggle, a fight for freedom that dates back centuries, persistent, valiant and unsung. Kim San is one of the three youngest leaders of its latest revolution, a wandering rebel, who ran away from home as a youngster, became associated with leading international terrorists and communists, learned the underground route, sacrificed everything personal for love of his country. She traces the uprisings through the years, massacres, tortures, imprisonment -- a personal story which parallels the story of his country's struggle. Interesting but limited market.
