I enjoyed my time on the tiaga with the Captain and Dersu. What an amazing tale about an amazing man and amazing part of this planet. It has been made into a film of the same name. Dersu the Trapper is at once cersu witnessing of Russia’s last frontier and a poignant memoir of rare cross-cultural understanding. Instead of western Europeans encountering Native Americans, there are eastern Europeans and Chinese encountering people of Mongolian descent and other races.
