Imagine moving there with your whole family. Imagine by-passing Moscow and St. Petersburg, and moving to Red-Neck Russia instead.Texas Tales in Siberia is about a sixth generation Texas boy who goes to Siberia and struggles to adjust with his family in tow. Hilarious misadventures follow one after another as he learns to navigate the cultural divide between the Lone Star State and 1,000 years of Russian life. In time he discovers that the greatest challenges are not from his new environment, but from within.Had he been a salesman or worked in petroleum it would have made no difference. The fact that he is a preacher is beside the point. Adjusting to life in Russia will continue to be an interesting challenge for any westerner who ventures there. Texas Tales in Siberia is an inexpensive and painless way to visit Russia.The Williams family moved to Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia on January 3rd, 1998.

If you need to escape to another time and place, if you want to laugh out loud, then this is your ticket.This humorous autobiography covers a period of orientation into a Siberian lifestyle.

Dealing with difficult taxi drivers, soviet shopping malls, and horrible roads were strange aspects of the daily routine.You will fall in love with the Russian people. Their stories and heroism are touching. Stalin’s purges and Siberian Gulags could not stop those who struggled for freedom of conscience. Had circumstances been different this could have been your life. If the world continues down its current path, it may yet be so…
