Tales from Siberia is a poignant, entertaining and stimulating narrative from the first American to live in Omsk (Siberia) during Russia's economic and social upheavals of the 1990s. Randy Black's collection of heart-touching, inspiring and sometimes humorous stories chronicles Russians as they confront the painful thawing out process from their 75-year communist deepfreeze.
