Sibir: my discovery of Siberia

This book took me completely by surprise – it was fascinating.  This is Farley Mowat’s account of his first trip to Siberia in 1966.  It is a guided tour of the hospitable, resourceful and colourful people who enlightened him on his journeys across the U.S.S.R.  There are stories of ingenuity in how dams and buildings were built in the ‘eternal frost,’ tales of lifelong friendships made and situations during which hilarity ensues.  This book travelled with me and its stories will continue to resound.
