Vignettes - Siberia
Siberia: a vast and ancient territory, a mystery to the world outside its borders.
Rick Wirick and his wife have gone to Siberia to adopt a baby girl. Rather than produce a straightforward account of this journey, so profound and personal in itself, Wirick has chosen instead to absorb Siberia, to immerse himself in its history, legends, social reality and natural splendour in order to evoke for his new daughter the grandeur of her birthplace.
In one hundred interlocking vignettes, Wirick has created a sophisticated and passionate vision.
Personal in conception, unique in structure, One Hundred Siberian Postcards is an inspiring and unusual introduction to a very far-away land.
