Mowat writes about his two journeys to parts of Siberian in the late 1960's. He meets interesting people who seem to think that the USSR is a paradise on earth. Everything is better there than in the West and Mowat doesn't even try to be critical of their claims.

I agree completely with the other reviewers. Book is a piece of junk. The USSR had taken note of his writings about how badly the indigenous people of Canada were, and are, treated. They figured that they could butter him up and make a propaganda coup. Worked like a charm.

Some of his work is great. Some pedestrian. And some really dumb. Pay attention.… (more)

Farley made 2 trips to Siberia. Read. More like a novel than reality.
