What people are saying about The Iron Scar:

The Iron Scar brought me on a journey that unexpectedly and artfully had me thinking about my own father and my sons throughout the book, as well as introducing me to the wild, warm, and colorful world of Siberia. Thank you for bringing me onboard with you and your son.

—Martin Sheen, actor

I was looking forward to reading The Iron Scar and as expected it didn’t disappoint. From the start, you had me onboard from St. Petersburg and through Siberia. This book informs with a casualness that will stay with me, but it does something more: It allows me to travel with you, meet passengers and hike to Lake Baikal, but also to travel with my two sons, who, like yours in these pages, are beginning their own journeys into adulthood. It is a book I’ll come back to often.

—Tim O’Brien, author of The Things They Carried and Going After Cacciato
