This is the third of the Lionel Davidson big adventure stories that began with The Rose of Tibet.
It took a horrendously long time to write this book and was a torturous period in my Father's life. The book was rewritten three times.
During the course of this book my Father's messianic-style vision fell apart, my mother died and the Soviet Union (which the book was set in) also fell apart.
Despite all this my father remarried and the outcome of the third attempt resulted in a whopper of an adventure story and is currently the most popular of all his books.
There are hundreds of reviews of this book - here is one with an unsual story sent in by a fan
Kolymsky Heights is a big adventure story set mainly in Siberia. Extremely icey, extremely remote. Sometime after this time my Father seemed to become remote, at least artistically. He rarely discussed his writing. Maybe he felt he couldn't write any more. He did though, he continued writing up until a few weeks before he died in October 2009.
