Overdoing It by Anton Chekhov is a short story about a land surveyor who hires a peasant cart driver to take him to the estate he has been summoned to survey. The journey is long and tortuous, and the surveyor is jolted and marvelled at the capacity of the Russian drivers for combining a slow pace with a jolting that turns the soul inside out. The surveyor is worried about the danger of the journey, but the driver, Klim, reassures him that there are no robbers on the road. The surveyor even lies to Klim that he has three revolvers to protect himself. The journey becomes even more suspicious when the cart suddenly turns to the left, leaving the surveyor to wonder where Klim is taking him to. Read in English, unabridged.
