Synopsis: The 1990 journey of Matthiessen, Paul Winter and a group of Russian environmentalists who traveled around Siberia's Lake Baikal, the world's oldest and deepest lake, containing one-fifth of the planet's fresh water, is chronicled in diary form. Norton's 50 color photos enhance the text. A portion of the royalties go to Baikal Watch. Map.

From the Back Cover: "During a long night spent thinly clad on rocks on a steep mountainside, I have time to consider why I find myself in such hard circumstances after scarcely a fortnight in the Soviet Union. The reason lies below, in great Baikal, which has drawn me since the day, long years ago, that I first learned of a primordial deep lake of diamantine clarity that lay off to the north of the Gobi Desert. Even today, despite serious damage, Baikal remains the cleanest large lake in the world, not because care has been taken but because its enormous depth and volume have absorbed -- so far -- man's efforts to despoil it. Only recently has it been known how swiftly the lake's ancient ecology could unravel, and how close man has come to losing it forever."

-- From The Text By Peter Matthiessen
