Three-fourths of Russia is in Siberia, but most of us think of its vast expanses only as a vague, frigid wasteland. New Yorker journalist and author Ian Frazier (Great Plains; On the Rez; Gone to New York) fills that vacancy with an energetic account of his ultimate road trip into the great unknown. The journey takes this intrepid American into the far reaches of this forbidding hinterland, but also deep into the often bizarre history of the region. Travels in Siberia spotlights Frazier's ability to be remarkably insightful without losing his sharp sense of wit. A dream pass for armchair travelers.
