An epic of the vast land of Russia

by bookie7 on May 24, 2007

About 50 years ago I wrote a biography of my Russian-born Grandma, raised in the area of Kiev. For years now I have been seeking information, either fictional or historical, on the culture and history that reflected the kind of life she led as a young girl. This fictional account, based on historical facts, was just what I had been looking for. The book has 900+ pages but I could hardly put it down. It was as interesting as though the author was painting a word picture on every page. I am now in the process of searching for other books that will fill in so many more areas of interest that picqued my curiousity as I was reading Russka. I would recommend this book to anyone with a keen sense of history. Especially of a country that holds such a diversity of culture and covers so many thousands of miles of a land mass that stretches from the borders of Eastern Europe to the frozen wastelands of Siberia, - each with its own unique personality of land and people.
