Dearest Ones at Home: Clara Taylor's Letters from Russia 1917-1919. Vol. 1
Clara Taylor sent over 70 letters home while working with the YWCA teaching Russian women skills to improve their lives. She tells of shootings in the streets, opera and ballet performances, the meals they ate, factory conditions, and glorious sunsets--both the extraordinary and the mundane. This is a book of letters from an ordinary American woman in Russia watching the Revolution from the streets--for people who read history and love true adventure.
