The journey to Russia's Sakhalin Island by ferry from Northern Japan takes about six hours, but it's a voyage that spans decades. With history hanging in the air, author D.G. Hilton travels by land and sea with his wife to the birthplace of her father, who as a boy fled to Japan to escape advancing Soviet forces. Together, they explore southern Sakhalin (known as Karafuto in Japan) in an old 4X4, and discover a land of living history, stunning natural beauty, and proud, colorful people. Long disputed by two great nations technically still at war and prized for its rich natural resources, Sakhalin Island is an adventure travel destination unlike any other.
