    It's a big world and we don't often get to hear from those who aren't Amurrican.

    I am surprised there isn't more written about worlds run by wind and things.

    I give our scifi writers a lot of credit for raising our awareness about many things.

    I don't think I have tried Cossacks.  I tried Resurrection once when the kids were small and didn't manage to get far.

    Not sure why.

    wiki says of Resurrection:

    Tolstoy intended the novel as an exposition of injustice of man-made laws and the hypocrisy of institutionalized church. It was first published serially in the magazine Niva as an effort to raise funds for the resettlement of the Dukhobors. The story is about a nobleman named Dmitri Ivanovich Neklyodov, who seeks redemption for a sin committed years earlier. His brief affair with a maid resulted in her being fired and ending up in prostitution. The book treats his attempts to help her out of her current misery, but also focuses on his personal mental and moral struggle
    .

    Always glad to see you!!
