Switching to Russia: Russka: The Novel of Russia

Russka: The Novel of Russia Russka: The Novel of Russia by Edward Rutherfurd

My review

I've finished reading about Africa for a while and am switching to Russia. I plan to spend this summer reading about those two countries so I can plan history classes for next year's homeschool. I figure that our kids will need to know a lot about those two counties in the coming years and fortunately, in homeschool, I can change the curriculum to meet current needs.

This book is a great one if you want to understand the various ethnic groups that were gathered together to form the USSR. It is easy to see why these groups of people may not always get along. Edward Rutherfurd has done a thorough job in describing the various people and their folkways.
