Format: Paperback
Ms. Harrison's bravery and resilience during her time in Soviet Prison is remarkable. That she was able to journal her experiences after her release is a credit to her ability to represent the Soviets in a revealing, yet realistic way. Dr. Whisenhunt's introduction and footnotes make navigation of the book easy, and his background information on the characters Ms. Harrison encounters brings the story to life. This book should be read by any who want to know more about the early days of Soviet Russia, the good and the bad.

The author, Ms. Harrison, was a strong, brave woman especially during the 1920's when her travels took place. I loved her description of Karl Marx........Ha ha ha! A great and informative book to read.
