"Moscow Classics: Go Somewhere Beautiful" tells the story of a retiring Classics professor Louis Perraud in Moscow, Idaho. It's a tale of how a northeastern, cosmopolitan, non-driving, opera-loving, single, Rome-educated scholar not only survived for 27 years in the arid terrain of the rural West, but also helped run a thriving program in classical languages and literatures. He is the reason why Idaho farm kids want to learn Latin and Greek.
