With some of the most gifted writers of the 19th century as her guides—Pushkin, Tolstoy, Gogol, and Chekhov, among others—Sara Wheeler searches for a Russia not in the news, traveling from northwestern beet fields and the Far Eastern Arctic tundra to the cauldron of nationalities in the Caucasus. Bypassing most cities, she goes instead to the places associated with the country's literary masters. Sharing both historical images and contemporary snapshots, Wheeler weaves these authors' lives and works around their historical homes, creating rich portraits of the many diverse Russias from which these writers spoke.
