Ah yes, I missed that edit! I edit sometimes too like that, but somehow I always manage to catch mine.
And I'll use my last nomination to second Silent Steppe. Sounds pretty interesting, and using your link and clicking through to see all the "used & new" buying options, it's actually not that much for a used copy.
As and aside, I'm surprised at the lack of support for Off the Beaten Tracks. It's not a tome, it's new and fresh, it's a salt-of-the-earth Russian travelogue by Russian writers and it seems to have a literary slant, and it's available as an e-book in the U.S., the U.K. and Australia!
