    1 thought on “Sacred Sea

    1. I've rarely had such a dual reaction to a book; the sections on Baikal itself were fascinating, but the personal memoir parts had me cringing. Peter Thomson was the founding editor and producer of NPR's program "Living on Earth". As the dust jacket says, "In nearly a decade at the program his work was honored with nearly twenty awards for excellence in broadcast journalism." He leaves in 2000 to take an around-the-world trip with his brother James, planning to see Baikal on the way.So I expected [...]

    2. There are many enjoyable elements of this book for anyone who has been or plans to go to Lake Baikal. As a member of the former category (and one who harbors hopes of an eventual return visit) I could relate to many of the author's travel experiences. I share his reverence of Baikal and appreciated the many common Russian travel experiences we hold in common.If the book had been had primarily consisted of his travel stories, I probably would have rated this 4 stars. However, much of the book cov [...]

    3. As a resident of the Great Lakes basin, I'm particularly drawn to know more about the other temperate-zone lake that contains as much water (tho much less surface) as the 5 lakes I've called homeland for much of my life. Peter Thomson's impression of Baikal shows it to be under threat, yet somehow resilient (depending on your informer). This is a memoir, as well, and does a good job of balancing a personal interest story with travelogue and descriptive science.

    4. I love reading stories about unusual journeys, and this is certainly an unusual journey. Peter Thomson is a brilliant reporter, who makes complicated political and scientific issues easy to understand. He also reports compelling and honestly on his relationship with his brother and his heartbreak over his failed marriage.

    5. I want to see a nerpa someday. I would also like to go on a crazy journey like like this. I started reading the book because I have a soft spot for enviro lit, but my favorite parts were the descriptions of the crazy travel experiences from Alaska through Korea and Japan, and of course the Trans-Siberian. What an epic journey!

    6. I am guilty of personal attachment here. The book is by my brother. It is also a really interesting travelogue to a part of the world I will probably never get to - Siberia - and I like those kinds of reads.
