author2-role , "After two and a half years as NPR's Moscow bureau chief, David Greene travels across the country--a 6,000-mile journey by rail, from Moscow to the Pacific port of Vladivostok--to speak with ordinary Russians about how their lives have changed in the post-Soviet years. Reaching beyond the headline-grabbing protests in Moscow, Greene speaks with a group of singing babushkas from Buranovo, a teenager hawking 'space rocks' from last spring's meteor shower in Chelyabinsk, and activists battling for environmental regulation in the pollution-choked town of Baikalsk"--Provided by publisher., (2)aan(4)canhanoansan11-03-14ma3, (OCoLC)889426310, -1- -10-11-2017 17:05, -1- -10-14-2017 10:38, -1- -11-06-2017 11:20, -1- -11-16-2017 16:48, .b1461247112-08-1710-09-14, .b1510004201-22-1609-08-15, 0393239950, 1 online resource (1 audio file (8hr., 15 min.)) :digital., 11418176Midwest Tape, LLChttp://www.midwesttapes.com, 1622315529 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), 869437837, 2014029382, 915.7 GREEN, 9780393239959, 9781622315529 (sound recording : hoopla Audio Book), After two and a half years as NPR's Moscow bureau chief, David Greene travels across the country--a 6,000 mile journey by rail, from Moscow to the Pacific port of Vladivostok--to speak with ordinary Russians about how their lives have changed in the post-Soviet years.
