This concise account of the travels of Chekhov to the infamous penal colony in Sakhalin is fascinating. Chekhov is a skilled narrator, who writes with clarity and wit. The section on the morality of the denizens of Sakhalin is particularly matter-of-fact, and leaves a chilling feeling towards the nature of corporal punishment.
