A journey along the massive range of Russian mountains that divides Europe from Asia.

“I’ve been overwhelmed by two impressions on this 2000-km journey: the unrelenting, chilling coldness in the north Ural, where nature explodes in the short summer, and the variety of people who have populated the Ural, some through early invasions and others exiled there by despotic authorities.”
