9781558216846: The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom

In 1941, the author and a small group of fellow prisoners escaped a Soviet labour camp. Their march out of Siberia through China, the Gobi Desert, Tibet and over the Himalayas to British India is a remarkable statement about man's desire to be free. With a new afterword by the author, and the author's foreword to the Polish edition, this new edition of "The Long Walk" is destined to outrank its classic status. "One of the epic treks of the human race". Shackleton, Franklin, Amundsen ...history is filled with people who have crossed immense distances and survived despite horrific odds. None of them, however, has achieved the extraordinary feat Rawicz has recorded. He and his companions crossed an entire continent - the Siberian arctic, the Gobi desert and then the Himalayas - with nothing but an axe, a knife and a week's worth of food ...His account is so filled with despair and suffering it is almost unreadable. But it must be read - and re-read.
