Alone Through the Forbidden Land by Gustav Krist
In 1924 the lands of Soviet Central Asia remained shrouded in secrecy, closed off from the rest of Russia without special travel permits, entering its borders as a westerner was simply impossible.
Gustav Krist endeavored to enter those forbidden lands where he had been held as a prisoner of war years before. Driven by the spirit of adventure he would begin a sixteen month journey—using false papers in a daring expedition—revisiting cities where he had previously been condemned to death by Soviet authorities. Along his travels Krist would come to live among the Nomad tribes who called the steppe their home and witness their last days of freedom in a changing world. The forces of Soviet Russia were finally taming a land that had remained wild for centuries.
A story of close escapes and grueling journeys, Krist weaves a narrative that is both lively and intimate. The sequel to his previous exploits recounted in Prisoner in the Forbidden Land, for the first time in decades these titles are available to the public at an affordable price.
