      Well, fiction is exactly what it is. I heard that Ruska in Finnish means
      autumn colors.

      However, for a more believable account of Russian history before Rurik, I
      would recommend Rev. S. Lyashevsky's "Prehistoric Rus" a
      historical-archeological research, 1977 (Doistoricheskaya Rus). He looks at
      many historical sources, Byzantine, European, Asian and Slavic, s.a. the
      Book of Veles and little known chronicles of various monastic libraries.
