"I enjoyed this despite probably not being the target audience and learned that I never want to go to a field expedition to Russia. "
Jonathan Slaght liked Cathy Douglas's review of Across the Ussuri Kray: Travels in the Sikhote-Alin Mountains:
"What a remarkable book. It's hard to believe an exploration like this took place just in the last century, right around the same time my grandparents were immigrating to America. While civilization was busy adding electricity to cities, Arsenyev, Der" Read more of this review »
Hi Lillian, I can't get my 8-year-old to read it, but some people with children 8-14 have told me their kids **loved** being read this book. There's a fair bit of drinking, the occasional naked person (saunas and hot springs, nothing tawdry), and onl See Full Answer

Jonathan Slaght shared a note and highlight from
It was clearly an owl, but bigger than any I’d seen, about the size of an eagle but fluffier and more portly, with enormous ear tufts. Backlit by the hazy gray of a winter sky, it seemed almost too big and too comical to be a real bird, as if someone had hastily glued fistfuls of feathers to a yearling bear, then propped the dazed beast in the tree.
Even today, after fifteen years of experinece with these birds, they take my breath away every time I see one. My first description here holds: these birds are improbably large and often look like they just rolled out of bed; late for work.
Jonathan Slaght voted for A Burning as Best Fiction in the Semifinal Round of the 2020 Goodreads Choice Awards.
