Additional exhibitions are being planned for venues in the United States and China in and The work is part of a collaboration between the Chinese government and the Nature Conservancy called the Yunnan Great Rivers Project, which was designed to create and protect a series of parks and wildlife preserves throughout more than 25, square miles about the size of West Virginia.
The project is China's most ambitious attempt at preserving the ecosystems within the vast area of the YunnanProvince and will serve as a model for the rest of the country. These mountainous lands bordering Burma Myanmar and Tibet hold, among other biological riches, virgin forests, some 7, endemic plant species and 30 endangered animal species, including snow and clouded leopards, Yunnan golden monkeys and red pandas.
The provision was an insult to Chinese sovereignty and helped crystallize anti-imperialist sentiments and thus support for both the socialist and republican causes. The Comintern had promised Sun that if he would ally with the Communists, the Soviet Union would give him military advisers and arms to build a viable army that could reunify the country by overthrowing the warlords, who had seized upon the chaos and taken control of large areas.
In Mao moved to Shanghai with his wife and young sons as a Kuomintang executive. Within a year he was back in Hunan organizing peasant protests, but when he angered the military governor, he fled to Canton, Sun Yat-sen's headquarters. In March Sun Yat-sen died unexpectedly and the Kuomintang was taken over by Chiang Kai-shek, who solidified his position by marrying Sun's sister-in-law, Soong Mei-ling.
One of Chiang's first moves was to expel Communists from leadership posts; by early the tenuous alliance was broken, and the Communists were retreating to the countryside, where there was growing peasant unrest and thus a potential base of support.
In October Mao led a small group of Hunan peasants to the mountains of Jiangxi Province, where he and other party members created a soviet-style government and began to build a guerrilla army. They gained peasant support in part by redistributing land. It was in Jiangxi the fledgling Red Army developed the tactics that would defeat the Nationalists 22 years later -- establish a peasant base of support in the countryside, encircle the cities and choke off the Nationalist garrisons one by one.
In three years the Jiangxi soviet controlled several million people in the countryside, and the Red Army had grown to , men. It took Chiang's troops three years to defeat the warlords and reunify the country.
Then, in the early s, the Kuomintang launched several extermination campaigns against the Communists. It was during this period that the Kuomintang killed Mao's first wife and he married Ho Zizhen. For awhile the Red Army held its own, but in Chiang unleashed his best-trained units against the Jiangxi enclave, and the Communists were forced to flee. So began the legendary Long March, a 6,mile fighting retreat from Jiangxi to the mountain town of Yan'an in remote northern Shaanxi Province.
Only a tenth of the 80, guerrilla fighters who began the march survived. From this point forward Mao was the undisputed Chinese Communist leader, even through military setbacks and internal political purges.
