Product Description

Mrs. Cecil Chesterton (Ada Elizabeth Jones Chesterton, 1869-1962) was a journalist, dramatist and founder of the National Care Forum for Homeless Women. Sister-in-law to G.K. Chesterton, he said about her, "she not only could do everything, but she would do anything. Her work was patchwork of the wildest and most bizarre description; and she was almost continuously in a state of hilarious irony in contemplation of its contrast." My Russian Venture relates the story of Mrs. Chesterton's journey to the Soviet Union in the late 1920s, including the difficulties in undertaking the trip at all and her observations and interactions with people she meet on her travels.
