Tuva or Bust! : Richard Feynman's Last Journey
This is the third of the biographical books by Ralph Leighton and Richard Feynman, following on from "Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman?" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?". Written after Feynman's death, this book tells the story of their obsession with the town of Tuva in the Soviet Union and their plans to visit which were cut short by Feynman's early death.
