“A sentimental and illuminating collection of insights about a unique mountain region of Poland which pulsates with invigorating mountain air, native patriotism, regional culture, distinctive traditions, and physical beauty characteristic both of its landscape and of its people. Engaging to read, educational to absorb, it is the product of genuine scholarship and personal affection on the part of its author, a distinguished Polish Ameridan educator with deep family roots in the Tatra highlands.” – Zbigniew Brzezinski, National Security Advisor under President Carter.
