Riassunto: The heroine of this powerful work, Katya, is a bright, energetic and resourceful Volga German girl, a worthy descendant of those first pioneers of the steppe we learned to know in the second volume. Katya is free to reveal, through her feminine creator, thoughts and circumstances often hidden to men. Sigrid artfully illuminates dress, colors, textures, foods and challenges as Katya embarks upon an adventurous escape from a gulag on the arctic tundra and makes her way to Fresno, California, where she reconnects with a Volga German community that had immigrated decades earlier. From Gulag to Freedom is the third volume in Sigrid Weidenweber's trilogy "The Volga Flows Forever." Catherine, the first volume, brings to life the fascinating historical character of Catherine the Great who invited her native countrymen to settle the Russian frontier. The Volga Germans, the second volume, continues the story of the German immigrants and their descendants who civilized the bleak Russian frontier of the lower Volga River Valley. They survived an unpredictable and often harsh climate and the vagaries of tsarist edicts to build a culture that was uniquely their own.
L'autore: Born in Germany in 1941, Sigrid Weidenweber remembers firsthand the horrific aftermath of fascism. At the end of the war, she found herself living under communism. Both of these totalitarian regimes left indelible marks on her psyche. After the Berlin Wall was built, she escaped this repressive environment withthe help of friends and a French passport. Sigrid holds degrees in medical technology and psychology. In addition to Catherine and The Volga Germans, the first and second volumes in "The Volga Flows Forever" trilogy, Sigrid is also the author of Escaping the Twilight which deals with aspects of medical anthropology in an Islamic culture. Sigrid and Don, her husband of 44 years, live north of Los Angeles near a pair of adorable grandsons.
