Editorial Reviews

Lynn Noel
...Filled with glimpses into the been of the author, this book is an exceptional account of one man's life ad what it's like to five and breathe beneath the jackboot of a tyrant and the struggle required to escape to freedom. The Gulag Archipelago, by A, Solzhenitsyn, or Shindler's List are two such chronicles, and so is <I>The Price of Freedom...</I>

tells of man's struggle against his most fearsome enemy -his own kind. Rise story of mans faulty and vulnerability, At the same time, it is the story of mans greatness -how he can confront a long series of torments, endure and emerge with his essential soul and decency intact.
