About this book
A graphic novel-style history and adventure book for kids and adults alike. This fascinating and enriching journey along the longest railway in the world is one that train buffs will return to again and again.
The Trans-Siberian Railway links Russia like a sewing thread on which towns and villages are skewered like pearls.
This large-format book takes readers on a fascinating journey along its whole length, from Moscow to Vladivostok, a journey that takes seven days and covers over 5,700 miles.
In a striking style, reminiscent of a graphic novel, readers will discover facts about the journey and the history of the railway, but will also hear from local people who live along the line as they share details of their lives, their favorite places, and everything they would like to tell travelers on the Trans-Siberian railway. The book also includes tips such as how to organize one’s life on the train and what souvenirs to look out for.
Exquisitely illustrated by award-winning Anya Desnitskaya, this book will make a perfect gift for people young and old who are fascinated by trains, railway adventures, and Russian history.Brand: Aleksandra Litvina
