Paperback octavo, very good condition, black & white text-photos, map, minor edgewear (bottom edge front cover), autograph (large bold author's written dedication, as usual). 280 pp. First edition. Extraordinary biography of the author's grandfather, Colonel Tarasov of the White Russian army, his wife Aida, and their five children. They survived the Russian Revolution and Civil War and escaped to the Russian-dominated city of Harbin in China. They then coped with the Japanese occupation, and the later Communist takeover of China. Their next step was a refugee camp in the Philippines, before being accepted and reunited in Australia. (Loosely inserted: promotional brochure and map.).
