Drawn to Russia to work on conserving its extensive wilderness, Laura Williams shares the story of her life-changing move to the countryside, where she works on a remote nature Shpilenok. Together they explore the wilderness in the Bryansk forest surrounding their village of Chukhrai, encountering the elusive black stork, apprehending poachers, and raising a moose. Through the long winter, they cope with hardships, which Laura learns are nothing compared to those the villagers have experienced in the past century. Born and bred as a typical urban American, in just four seasons Laura creates a home with nature and her neighbors in remote, rural Russia.
