“Midnight in Siberia”

Russia has been in the news a lot lately, between President Vladimir Putin’s early departure from the G20 summit this weekend to the country’s incursions into Ukraine.

But outside of Putin’s Kremlin, and Moscow, there is a vast and seldom written-about Russia. NPR’s David Greene explored that landscape for his latest book, Midnight in Siberia: A Train Ride Into the Heart of Russia. It chronicles an epic journey Greene took on the trans-Siberian Railroad.
