For some it was the ‘living hell’; for others, a ‘land of the future’ and the promised paradise. George Borodin, in his present book, gives us a portrait of the changing face of this vast land, a country fifty times as big as England, a country that is a continent in itself, comprising regions as beautiful and mild as the Riviera in early June, or regions as inhospitable and horrifying as only the Polar regions can be.
