Description


The journey continues in Part 2 of Into the Carpathians: a compelling chronicle of a hiking and wildlife research expedition along the Carpathian and Sudeten Mountains, from Romania to Germany, some 800 miles as the crow flies. Still on the trail of wolves, we now explore the enchanting mountain landscapes of Slovakia, Poland, and the Czech Republic, where poignant encounters with wolves, bears, and lynx; lumberjacks, shepherds, and outlaws; poets, tyrants, and saints; sprites, spirits, and witches; and such ancient peoples as Neanderthals, Celts, and Quadi--and such imposing historical figures as Marcus Aurelius of the Roman Empire, Prince Svatopluk of Great Moravia, Stephen I of the Kingdom of Hungary, Boleslaw the Brave of the Kingdom of Poland, and Jan Sobieski of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth--provide broad insight into the natural, historical, and mythological forces that have shaped, and continue to shape, the cultures, nations, and psyches along the way. 72 color photographs also emblaze this memorable trek.
