Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As mysterious as its beautiful, as forbidding as it is populated with warm-hearted people, Syberia is a land few Westerners know, and even fewer will ever visit. Traveling alone, by train, boat, car, and on foot, Colin Thubron traversed this vast territory, talking to everyone he encountered about the state of the beauty, whose natural resources have been savagely exploited for decades; a terrain tainted by nuclear waste but filled with citizens who both welcomed him and fed him—despite their own tragic poverty. From Mongoloia to the Artic Circle, from Rasputin's village in the west through tundra, taiga, mountains, lakes, rivers, and finally to a derelict Jewish community in the country's far eastern reaches, Colin Thubron penetrates a little-understood part of the world in a way that no writer ever has.

Synopsis:

In a unique and compelling travel book, the author of The Lost Heart of Asia tours a region of Russia that has long captured the Western imagination, revealing the breathtaking natural beauty, tragic history, and vast spaces that make up Siberia. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
