When a devastating famine descended on Bolshevik Russia in 1921, the United States responded with a massive relief program that included nearly 300 American relief workers who were the first outsiders to witness and record Russia's Bolshevism. This epic tale is here related as an American adventure story, largely derived from the diaries, memoirs, and letters of the diverse and colorful group of American participants.
