Twenty-six-year-old cavalry officer Slavomir Rawicz was captured by the Red Army
in 1939 during the German-Soviet partition of Poland and sent to the Siberian Gulag.
In the spring of 1941, he escaped with six of his fellow prisoners, including one
American. Thus began their astonishing trek to freedom.

With no map or compass but only an ax head, a homemade knife, and a week's supply
of food, the compatriots spent a year making their way on foot to British India, through
four thousand miles of the most forbidding terrain on earth. They braved the Himalayas,
the desolate Siberian tundra, icy rivers, and the great Gobi Desert, always a hair's
breadth from death. Finally arriving, Rawicz reenlisted in the Polish army to fight the

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Theres nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us cannot do that as much as we would llike. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. It is a common problem and it is the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
