"First-time author Lt. Colonel Ramsdell does a masterful job of weaving his heart-stopping personal accounts with the sights, sounds, and history of Russia.  One of the most satisfying aspects of Ramsdell's narrative is the descriptions of some of his fellow train travelers, as well as the handful of angels he meets in the tiny Russian village of Potevka.  He so beautifully gives us a glimpse into the enigma of the Russian soul, the combination of human kindness tempered by the reticence engendered by seventy years of paranoid Communist rule and the necessity of self-preservation.  Those who have lived and traveled in Russia will instantly recognize some of these intrepid souls."  ~Steve Crain
