Steppe and Sky:
A Brief History of Ukraine
Modern Ukraine is entirely the product of the Soviet era. We know and remember well that it was shaped – for a significant part – on the lands of historical Russia.
- Vladimir V. Putin, “On the Historical Unity of the Russians and Ukrainians”
Steppe and Sky is a very brief history of Ukraine and its people from the early days of the Kyivan Rus’ in the ninth century up through the modern era to the eve of the 2022 Russian invasion.
It’s just a short book; we’re not kidding about the “brief” part. But here’s what makes it different:
That full $15 purchase price (minus credit card/paypal processing fees) will go to Catholic Relief Services’ mission assisting Ukrainian refugees in Poland. They are highly rated for efficiency (92 percent of their intake goes to actual aid) and they allow earmarking of donations for Ukraine.
This isn’t some nebulous “the profits will go to” thing; Avalanche Press will eat the production costs and the staff is doing all the editorial work (writing, layout and such) and shipping work unpaid. The donations continue until we’ve “sold” 5,000 of them, or 1 May 2022, whichever comes first.
We’re looking to ship the books in April 2022. You can order as many as you like. Note that shipping charges do apply.
