Take one very, very curious American, mix in 145 million Russians and a century of preconceived notions and then pour this mixture out against the magnificent urban theater played out daily in Moscow, St Petersburg and Pushkin – and you've got Matt Crisci's latest book 7 Days in Russia—The Adventures of One American in Today’s Federation.
Bestselling-author Crisci feeds his growing appetite for all-things Russian with an engrossing 7-day tour of Russia. Along the way, Crisci and his readers discover the Russia behind today’s headlines and yesterday’s Cold War images to reveal a vibrant and welcoming people in the midst of yet another historic political and cultural transition.
We learn through words, insights and more than 150 color photos taken by Crisci that Russia is not a politically repressed country of starving millions that survive day-to-day on an endless stream of vodka. Russians are, in fact, a proud, engaging, curious and, yes, quirky people, working their way through a time-bending transition.
And just like Americans, they hold on to the past while they race forward. So come along with Crisci, visit some of Russia’s amazing sites and find a path into the heart of a captivating people and country.
