Book Review:A Train to Potevka

I just realized that I am WAY behind on my book reviews!  So over the next few days, I'll get caught up!

In March, we read A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell for book club.  I enjoyed this book and it was a very quick read. 

Although it is a "novel", it is based on the author's own experiences in Russia and it was amazing to think of him going through what he did and the inner strength he had to survive!

I think my favorite part in the book was when it describes him walking in the snow (and you can imagine how FREEZING it was) and how he collapes from exhaustion.  Then he hears the wolves and forces himself to get to safety.  AMAZING!  Definitely an inspiring story!!!
