More About The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz
 
 
 
Overview
MORE THAN HALF A MILLION COPIES SOLD The classic adventure story that inspired the new major motion picture The Way Back, directed by Peter Weir *** In 1941, the author and six fellow prisoners of war escaped a Soviet labor camp in Yakutsk--a camp where enduring hunger, cold, untended wounds, and untreated illnesses, and avoiding daily executions were everyday feats. Their march--over thousands of miles by foot--out of Siberia, through China, the Gobi Desert, Tibet, and over the Himalayas to British India is a remarkable statement about man's desire to be free. Guaranteed to forever stay in the reader's mind, The Long Walk will remain a testament to the strength of the human spirit, and the universal desire for freedom and dignity. "I hope The Long Walk will remain as a memorial to all those who live and die for freedom, and for all those who for many reasons could not speak for themselves." --Slavomir Rawicz *** Six-time Academy Award-nominee Peter Weir (Master and Commander, The Truman Show, and The Dead Poets Society) recently directed The Way Back, a much-anticipated film based on The Long Walk. Starring Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, and Ed Harris.
