Long before reality television shows like Survivor, some people rnwalked across the United States and Europe to Russia on real-life, rnSurvivor-like projects.rnThis is the inside story of one of those break-down-the-walls rnprojects during the height of the 1980s Cold War by a journalist rntrained to be as objective as possible.rnThe walk was covered by more than 2,000 newspapers and other rnmedia outlets. The participants met officials in all countries, rnincluding Russia, in an effort to get them to reverse the arms race rnand work together for the good of humanity.rnWalking through the Wall details the sometimes intense internal rnconflicts of this project and others. The book covers the dangers rnthat included one participant of a 1987-88 march in India being hit rnby a bus and almost dying.rnIt is a timeless story of not just trying to walk through barriers like rnthe Berlin Wall, but of attempting to break through internal walls, rnunseen walls between fellow human beings, walls between one's rnself.
