Roy Jacobsen and Anneliese Pitz

The Man Who Loved Siberia. A butterfly collector's memories of East Siberia
Mannen som elsket Sibir. En sommerfuglsamlers erindringer fra Øst-Sibir

Fritz Dörries (1852-1953) lived a life that few of us can grasp today. During his 22 years of adventurous travelling in Siberia, he collected tigers, deer, eagles, plants, and butterflies. He was a mixture of Ed Stafford and Carl von Linnaeus travelling alone in a sledge across Siberia. Cold, beauty, and suffering. The novel is based on his memoirs – an incredible story about nature, travel, and discovery.
