Today’s book recommendation comes from Matador Travel community member, lukenye.
All of British travel writer Colin Thubron‘s books are well worth the read but my favorite of his and overall favorite travel book would have to be In Siberia, which was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award.
It recounts his tale of traveling through the large expanses of Arctic tundra and vast empty lands that make up the region.
His descriptions evoke magical places not known to many. He turns Siberia into an enchanted land that evokes memories of J. R. R. Tolkien‘s Middle Earth.
I’ve read many travel books but this one keeps me coming back for the ultimate escape.
