Silverland, Paperback / softback Book

Silverland Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Silverland charts Dervla Murphy's extraordinary expedition through the snowscapes of Far Eastern Russia.

No stranger to adventure, the intrepid septuagenarian's mid-winter journey takes her beyond Siberia to the furthest corners of Russia - areas proximate to Japan, Mongolia and the Arctic Circle.

Here she discovers a strange world of lynx and elks, indigenous tribes and shamanism, reindeer broth and taiga-berry pie.

She takes the coal-fuelled slow-train around regions hardly exposed to tourism and there she meets a host of colourful and generous characters.

They invite this unconventional Irish Babushka into their homes where she enjoys fascinating fireside debate bolstered by steaming samovars of sweet tea.

Just like its author, Silverland is insightful, warm and truly original.
