The first of Chekhov's works to be published in a serious Russian literary journal, THE STEPPE marks his achievement of maturity as a writer of short stories. Presenting the world as seen through the eyes of its young hero, Yegorushka, it is a masterly account of a journey across the Russian prairies, interrupted by one of literature's most spectacular thunderstorms.
