Camping with the Communists by Karen Gilden isn’t just a powerful, well-written page-turner about a family experiencing the rawness of the Soviet Union, following the “duck and cover” days of the Cold War. It also brilliantly illuminates the difference between living “free and not free” and speaks to the hopelessness of a culture where “ideas die within.” Gilden’s narrative, underlaid with a spark of humor is sobering, haunting and not soon forgotten. A must read for all those living in the free world--adults and teens included.
