The Extraordinary Tale of Kate Marsden – Jacki Hill-Murphy


This is a story that defies all reason: a Victorian spinster and nurse, so obsessed with the fate of leprosy-sufferers worldwide that she was prepared to journey, in WInter, nearly ten thousand miles across pre-revolutionary Russia, to one of the most inhospitable areas on earth, first to find a legendary plant that might be a cure, and report on living conditions of sufferers in the remote Siberian forests. 

A monumental, spellbinding book full of beautiful prose and wild exploration which is likely to become a classic and new genre in adventure writing. – Tor Torkildson, Editor The Walkabout Chronicles: Epic Journeys by Foot.
