I read through this much faster than I thought I would, considering it's size. I love reading books about cold places, and Frazier doesn't disappoint, although much of the book describes traveling through Siberia in the summer.

Frazier mixes historical information with his own experiences in Russia over a 20-year period. He works these two together rather seamlessly, I think. He doesn't pull any punches, describing both Siberia's beauty and it's harshness. He travels by train, car, car-on-a-train, and plane, describing the cities, industries, weather, people and history that make the concept of Siberia so compelling. If you have any interest in this part of the world, read it.
