Russia and the Trans-Siberian Railroad had been a great interest of author Roy Dews for many years. He then learned his brother-in-law, Andy Anderson, shared the same interest. An adventure was born. In The Russian Odyssey, Dews recounts the details of the fifty-two day journey he and Anderson experienced beginning June 7 of 1993.
In this travelogue, Dews narrates the ins and outs of trip that originated in Atlanta, Georgia, and took the pair to Warsaw, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland and culminated in a 5,810-mile trip on the Trans-Siberian Railroad from Moscow to Vladivostok. Written in a diary format, Dews shares the highs and lows and the challenges and successes as the pair traversed through Europe and Russia.
With photos included, The Russian Odyssey not only offers a recap of Dews' experiences, but it provides insight into the history, culture, people, and sights and sounds of a travel abroad.
