Road Of Bones

Road Of Bones

Jeremy Poolman  (Author)
The Road of Bonesis the story of Russia´s greatest road. For over 200 years, the route of the Vladimirka Road has been at the centre of the nation´s history, having witnessed everything from the first human footsteps to the rise of Putin and his oil-rich oligarchy. Tsars, wars, famine and wealth: all have crossed and travelled this road, but no-one has ever told its story.

In pursuit of the sights, sounds and voices both past and present, Jeremy Poolman travels the Vladimirka. Both epic and intimate, The Road of Bones is a record of his travels - but much more. It looks into the hearts and reveals the histories of those whose lives have been changed by what is known by many as simply The Greatest of Roads.

This is a book about life and about death and about the strength of will it takes to celebrate the former while living in the shadow of the latter.

Anecdotal and epic, The Road of Bones follows the author´s journey along this road, into the past and back again. The book takes as its compass both the voices of history and those of today and draws a map of the cities and steppes of the Russian people´s battered but ultimately indefatigable spirit.
