The Long Walk: The True Story Of A Trek To Freedom by Slavomir Rawicz

In 1941, the author and six other fellow prisoners escaped a Soviet labor camp in Yakutsk - a camp where enduring hunger, cold, untended wounds, untreated illnesses and avoiding daily executions were everyday feats. Their march - over thousands of miles by foot - out of Siberia, through China, the Gobi Desert, Tibet and over the Himalayas to British India is a remarkable statement about man's desire to be free.

While the original book sold hundreds of thousands of copies, this updated paperback version includes a new Afterword by the author, as well as the author's Foreword to the Polish book. Written in a hauntingly detailed, no holds barred way, the new edition of The Long Walk is destined to outrank its classic status and guaranteed to forever stay in the reader's mind.

"I hope The Long Walk will remain as a memorial to all those who live and die for freedom, and for all those who for many reasons could not speak for themselves." - Slavomir Rawicz
