Thoughts on this man?
I just read his Poland and Alaska and was afraid i would slog through them, but they turned out to be great reads. Perhaps not the most accurate factually and ideologically, as he takes liberties and creates characters and events alongside historical ones, but i loved the way he creates context for geographical regions and describes the grandeur that exists in things most people would never bother describing like the view of the mountain ranges and forests from a town now lost to time, or the process required to mine gold in a permafrost.
I've never seen him discussed here for some reason. What do you guys think?
