The Other Side of Russia A Slice of Life in Siberia and the Russian Far East Synopsis

Award-winning author Sharon Hudgins takes readers on a personal adventure through the Asian side of Russia - from the high-rise villages of Vladivostok and Irkutsk to Lake Baikal and the Trans-Siberian Railroad route. Join her as a guest confronted with exotic dishes at Christmas parties, New Year's banquets, Easter dinners, and Siberian festivals - and discover what daily life is really like on Russia's other side.

The Other Side of Russia A Slice of Life in Siberia and the Russian Far East Press Reviews

Sharon Hudgins has written a vivid and engrossing book about a part of the world that's both geographically and ethnically complex. She's done much to make the unfamiliar familiar. - Larry McMurtry; Rare is the person who can step into the wonderland of Siberia and capture the culture and spirit of its people. Sharon Hudgins has done that and more. This is a warm, considered, and completely engaging work from start to finish... a window into the soul of Siberia. - James Cramer, President & CEO, World Learning; ... an animated examination of grim, grimy, and unpredictably gracious ordinary life in the extraordinary place she calls Absurdistan. - Alfred Friendly, Jr., coauthor, Ecocide in the USSR, and former Newsweek Moscow Bureau Chief
