From the cover: “Beyond the Tsar and the Soviet Union’s notorious penal colony of Siberia lies Kamchatka, a vast territory stretching east to the Bering Strait and Alaska and south to the islands Russia disputes with Japan. For many years this remote land was forbidden territory not only for Westerners but for Russians also.
On her journeys Dodwell learns to herd reindeer, drive dog sleds, ski frozen rivers, climb up into volcanoes and track bears. She also travelled with a dance troupe entertaining the scattered communities of reindeer herdsmen, and listening to their stories and legends.”
