Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through Siberia by Accident is an account of a journey that didnt happen—and what happened instead. While still thousands of miles from her original destination, Ussuriland in the Russian Far East, Dervla Murphy found herself stymied by multiple minor injuries. This book is an extraordinary story of fortitude and resourcefulness as Murphy finds friendship and culture in one of the worlds bleakest, most inhospitable regions.

Synopsis:

Describes a journey that didn't happen - and what happened instead. This book is a story of fortitude and resourcefulness as the author finds friendship and culture in a seemingly monotonous, bleak and inhospitable place far from what we know as 'civilised'. It is a voyage of Siberian self-discovery.
