Product Description

Synopsis

Jeffrey Tayler's intrepid journey up the Lena - a river closed to the world during the Soviet era - took him through some of Siberia's wildest and most hauntingly beautiful regions and brought him into contact with many groups of isolated villagers. These people survive in this region - now a wild frontier that lives off the diamond trade - cut off from the world by lack of roads, neglected by the Russian government and prey to alcoholism. Their untold stories form the focus of the book, set against the backdrop of Tayler's descriptions of incredibly harsh weather conditions and his adventures in negotiating permission to travel in the region with Russian authorities and then navigating the Lena to its mouth in the Laptev Sea, above the Arctic Circle.

Format: Hardcover
i think this is the same book as the River of no Reprieve by the same author,,,anyway a great read,,,a fascinating journey down a "proper" wilderness river through one of most unknown regions on earth with a great character called Vadim who guides the author on this expedition. This runs alongside a great insight into Russian history spanning from Ivan the terrible to Putin today,it makes you realise how little we know about life in the former soviet union today,, all in all makes for a very entertaining book.

A really excellent book, very informative, well written and amusing too.
Any traveller interested in places way off the beaten track will enjoy this book.
The author has travelled to places where hardly anybody (or perhaps nobody) goes.
Highly recommended.
