Product description

Synopsis

An account of the author's extensive travels in little-explored rural Romania, with many insights into its arts, crafts, peoples and landscapes, and a cry for commonsense and eco-awareness in the face of the rampant destructive exploitation of the country's mineral wealth; "To many travellers," writes Jessica Douglas-Home in the foreword to this book, "Romania has exerted the most powerful fascination. They have found that this country more than any other has illuminated their inner beliefs with the intensity of a magnifying glass. So it has been for Caroline Juler..." Searching For Sarmizegetusa is more than a travel book: it is both a hommage from the heart to a country that the writer knows and loves, and a lament for the inestimable natural, cultural and historical riches that globalization and so-called progress are steadily destroying. Yet it is also a song of hope, and a summons to challenge the irresponsibility of human greed. With a Foreword by Jessica Douglas-Home.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Having recently visited some of the remote areas the author discusses in this book I returned to it with renewed interest. Her meetings and talks with a plethora of fascinating individuals for whom Romania is a home are eye-opening and enriching. The section on Bucium in the Metaliferi mountains is especially rewarding and the author's encounters with the owner of the building on the front cover. An important book in the canon of Romanian travel literature, full of informative and delicate observations, it will enhance any visit to these still wonderful places. It should be read in conjunction with 'Along the Enchanted Way' by William Blacker.
