Told through the animal characters, this graphic memoir is a coming of age story that takes place during a unique historical moment and tells the tale of one young person’s journey of discovery and cultural immersion. In 1988, two years before the end of the Cold War, the US and the USSR held the world at nuclear ransom. Meanwhile, grassroots organizing is bringing American and Soviet youth together in missions of peace. What can a group of teenagers, on a raft on Siberia's Ob River, hope to accomplish?
