The book received very
good and grateful first round readers’ reviews.
The story tells about real events. A group of six mountaineers explores the high
altitude region of Tuva, the mountain area on the border of Mongolia and Russia.
Unexpectedly, for this time of the year, the temperatures drop sharply and the
weather brings snow storms and bitter cold. However, the group decides to stay
on their route. The adventure brings troubles for some of its participants, but
eventually they manage to get through. This is a story about what makes a
difference in life and achievements of people. The narrative is discreet and
measured, sometimes with humor, but the thrill and tension are beating underneath,
which makes the reading emotional and dramatic.
