Overview

Camping with the Communists: The Adventures of an American Family in the Soviet Union by Karen Gilden

The ultimate road trip! This inspiring adventure tale follows an American woman and her family as they drive 3,800 miles through the Soviet Union in a VW Camper. Traveling at the height of the Cold War, the Gildens were on their own in the USSR, with no guide and few road signs, following their noses on a unique-in-every-way adventure.

Join the family as they struggle with the Soviet bureaucracy, come face to face with the KGB, smuggle a diamond ring, and say "Nyet!" to the border guards. Whether you remember the Soviet Union or not, this book is a treat to read-smart, entertaining, and funny. You won't be able to put it down.
