    Absolutely amazing escape and survival story in Siberia!

    Absolutely one of the best books that I have ever read! There were times when my heart was literally racing while reading this book. This is the story of one man's quest against both nature and man to reach his home - by foot, alone, walking west from the Bering Strait, destination: Germany! Our man fights Siberian blizzards, relentless hunger, ravenous wolves, escaped convicts, and even manages to defy the immense, omnipresent dangers of the Soviet police state. From beginning to end, the story leaps right out of the pages, and you can feel you are right there with Forell (the main character). Forell is a German POW that has been sentenced to 25 years hard labor in a Soviet lead mine at the edge of human existence. Of course, no one lives more than a few years after mining lead - who cares anyway since they are enemies of the Soviet state. After some time Forell and all his comrades slowly but inevitably begin to succumb to lead poisoning. Shaking off the lead-induced apathy, Forell makes his grim resolution to reach Germany or die trying - there will be no surrender. From then on we follow Forell's long, hard, and bitter journey to ultimate freedom. After his labor camp ordeal, his trek across the wilds of Siberia, and his experience with Soviet-style civilization, even his own uncle is completely unable to recognize him. Truly one of the best adventure stories ever told!!! I never wanted to put the book down!
