    The Vladimirka Road leads east from Moscow to Vladimir and Nizhny Novgorod. For 200 years, under tsars and Soviets alike, its length has been trudged by prisoners on their way to Siberia. Poolman's epic travelogue takes him not just along its physical length, but into the heart of Russia's tragic history. The people he meets and the stories they tell speak of the resilience and strength it takes to celebrate life while living in the shadow of death.
