"The Blue Steppes" is a 1925 account of the author's time spent in Russia immediately before and during the revolution of 1917. Within it, he offers incredible descriptions of the people and places he saw, as well as his experiences of the upper nobility and their unique world. George Frankham Shelley (1891 - 1980) was a British author, linguist and translator who famously travelled throughout Imperial Russia at the time of the Russian Revolution. While there, he adopted the life of a priest and lived in a community of the Oblates of St. Joseph.
