This review is from: As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me (Paperback)
This is a truely gripping book. Describing the sheer hell that was the Gulag in Eastern Kamchatka, Forel realises that NOT to escape was a death sentence - he was being slowly poisoned by the lead mine he was working, living and sleeping in.
His story of his long trek to freedom is a gripping tale of human resolve, and is also a terrible tale of man's inhumanity to man.
Highly recommended - and very humbling to read.
