Fred Strebeigh Fred Strebeigh has written for publications that include the Atlantic Monthly, Audubon, Smithsonian, and the New York Times Magazine; he teaches in the environment school at Yale University. Although his assignments have required him to explore China by bicycle, the Falkland Islands by horse, southern Africa by Land Rover, and the Newfoundland coast by inflatable boat, Fred says that no travel has involved more pleasure than crossing Russia on the Trans-Siberian Railroad.
