On sledge and horseback to the outcast Siberian lepers

From Wikipedia: Kate Marsden (13 May 1859 – 26 May 1931) was a British missionary, explorer, writer and nursing heroine. Supported by Queen Victoria and Empress Maria Fedorovna she investigated a cure of leprosy. She set out on a round trip from Moscow to Siberia to find a cure, creating a leper treatment centre in Siberia.

Apparently there was some sort of controversy with her, with accusations of homosexuality. But that probably isn't part of her book.

Approximately 65,000 words, or 7-7.5 hours of finished recording.
