I have read many travel memoirs, including artic exploration and harrowing mountain, and this is most incredible story I've read. The characters are interesting, the writing simple and compelling of an indomitable group of people walking to freedom under such dangerous conditions. The route - through the Siberian tundra, Gobi Desert and over the Himalaya mountains. This book is a keeper!
