Synopsis

As Far as My Feet Will Carry Me by Joseph Martin Bauer

Originally published in 1955, this must be one of the most dramatic adventures of our time. Clemens Forell, a German soldier, was sentenced to 25 years of forced labour in a Siberian lead mine after the Second World War. Rebelling against the brutality of the camp, Forell staged a daring escape, enduring an 8000-mile journey across the trackless wastes of Siberia, in some of the most treacherous and inhospitable conditions on earth.Bauer's writing brilliantly evokes Forell's desperation in the prison camp, and his struggle for survival and terror of recapture as he makes his way towards the Persian frontier and freedom.

Reviews

Bauer has given us more than a prisoner-of-war story; he has left us one of the greatest adventure stories. * Die Welt * One of the wildest adventure books of our time. * Curt Hohof, Suddeutsche Zeitung * A story of human courage, endurance and terror. * Washington Post *

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Judith Sharp

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
