Title Profile & Character Information

Travels in Siberia

It's more than just 40-below winters. Siberia embraces Orthodox priests, scientists, prospectors, fur hunters, tea caravans, and, of course, prisoners. Its first travelog was written by 13th-century monks, and this latest should feature New Yorker contibutor Frazier's ever sharp and distinctive writing, even if he's far from the Great Plains and Rez.
