The Long Walk By Slavomir Rawicz

The Long WalkA young Polish officer named Slavomir Rawicz is captured and taken prisoner by Russians invading Poland. He is sentenced to life in prison for espianaus and brought to labor camp called Yakutsk hundreds of miles away. Slav becomes friends with a couple of his fellow prisoners and then they escape from the camp and trek into the Siberian wasteland in the middle of winter. Their goal is to reach India where they hope to find a way to freedom and safety which is thousands of miles away. They have to go through some of the most remote and inhospitable land on earth; through Siberia and Mongolia then onto the Gobi Desert through the Himalayas and part of China and then to India. All records of these events have been destroyed by the Russian government. If you like adventure and non-fiction books you should read this book.
