From Moscow to the Pacific on the Trans-Siberian Railway ("the big red train ride") is an eight-day journey of nearly 6000 miles. Eric Newby made this trip with his wife, an official guide and a photographer.
Harrassed by the Soviet conductor, hindered at every stage by bureaucratic officials, off his feed from bad food and worse drinks, Newby still managed to gather a wealth of detail about life in the USSR. And, most importantly, his sense of humor never deserted him.
"The best kind of travel book....It awakened frosty demons in me, and memories I had thought forgotten." --Paul Theroux
