Tonight I share with you the most Badass Adventure ever undertaken in the Northern Hemisphere: in which a Polish thinker escapes bloodthirsty Bolsheviks, crosses paths with warrior lamas, battles savage beasts, and struggles mile by mile across Asia to Freedom.
Ferdynand Antoni Ossendowski found himself on the wrong side of the Russian Revolution. And then he escapes by battling the elements, fighting and striking alliances with brigands and psychotics, and has to run and hide more than once to escape the fate of so many millions who were ground underneath the steamroller of Ideology in the 20th century.
The first chapter is entitled “Drawing Lots with Death.” Listen for the first fifteen minutes, and hear what happens to the Unwelcome Guests around the life-giving fire.
It only gets better from there.
The entire thing doesn’t let up for more than a page. And best of all, it’s in the public domain for download at Amazon. The entire audiobook is free, too.
As the temperatures drop, you can feel inspired by this tale of death and desperation.
