I was already familiar with the voice of David Greene from NPR. It was easy to shadow him as he and friend Sergio traveled across Siberia. I came away with an understanding of the political history and how it has affected the lives of these people. I feel I know them a little better.

Having traveled extensively in Russia myself, by train and by riverboat, I found myself recalling many of my own observations and experiences. Greene has captured the mindset of contemporary Russians better than any other author I have come across.
