SUMMARY The Long Walk The True Story of a Trek to Freedom READ & DOWNLOAD ´ The Long Walk The True Story of a Trek to Freedom FREE READ ✓ MIZUNOWAVERIDER.US í Sławomir Rawicz Slavomir Rawicz era um jovem oficial de cavalaria polaco uando a 19 de novembro de 1939 foi preso pelos russos sob a acusação de espionagem e condenado a 25 anos de trabalhos forçados nos gulags Em abril de 1941 c. There is much controversy as to whether this account is fact or fiction I googled the author s name and the book title and after reading dozens of articles and opinions I m still not sure though I lean towards thinking that the narrative is actually a composite of a number of experiences including Rawicz sAs was said in an account on the web entitled 18 Anderson s Long Walk Expedition in which a group of people retraced Rawicz s journey although on camels not on foot Attempting to find truth in every written word of the Long Walk dooms the book to skepticism The two most poignant examples of this are Rawicz and his companions crossing the Gobi desert without water for 13 days and sighting the yeti in the Himalayas However both of these events occurred when Rawicz was close to death due to extreme environmental conditions Other sections of the book such as the descriptions of the local people and their customs are so accurate it seems impossible a Polish immigrant living in England could have made up such details without experiencing them first handGiving Rawicz some creative leeway considering English was his third or fourth language and he wrote the book than 15 years after the walk occurred the events in the book take on a believable toneYou can find the complete article on the Polartech web siteI certainly enjoyed reading the book whether or not it was a completely true re telling of Rawicz s experiences or not The story was actually transcribed by Ronald Downing a British reporter I m sure he took some creative liberties especially in describing the Yeti encounter due to his desire to find eye witness accounts of just such meetingsThe story is exciting and moves along briskly The prose is sparse but captures the emotion of these survivors very well I recommend reading the book if for no other reason than to make up your own mind about the controversy surrounding its veracity
