Description

This six year memoir provides an intimate and fully illustrated eyewitness account of a country first at War with Germany, and then with itself. Battles in Poland, a brief interlude of peace and then all out war in the hills, valleys, and steppes of the Ural are brought to life. This is mainly a story of the last struggle on the Ural Steppes that more than nine generations of Borodins fought nature and nomads to tame. Readers will thrill to this remembrance of war, peace, revolutions, and civil war. The story is told with scores of original period and autobiographical illustrations all seen here for the first time. These compliment and transport the reader to a unique and once beautiful realm as it is transformed by a brutal Civil War. Dmitry Nikolayevich Borodin was a 2nd generation graduate of St. Petersbourg University. At the height of the Russian Civil War he commanded 1,500 men. Before the War he worked closely with B. P. Uvarov later Knight of the British Empire and in America he worked for the renowned geneticist N. I. Vavilov as a fluraculturalist, and geobotanist. Later in the 1930's he researched M-Rays, and vernalization as an American citizen.show more
