February 2014 - Robert Grainer is a day labourer in the American West at the start of the twentieth century-an ordinary man in extraordinary times. Shipped by train in 1893 unto the woods of the Idaho panhandle, he grows up, works on logging gangs, falls in love, and loses his wife and baby daughter to a particularly pernicious wildfire.
What an amazing book. has anyone read this book yet? This is a story of a man who was taken by the Russian army and put in one of their famous gulags in Siberia. Its the story of his struggle to survive and ultimately escape. Its an emotional and inspiring true story that I would recommend anyone to read.
