Anyone with an interesting in history
Read from January 22 to April 10, 2012 — I own a copy
This is both a good picture book, and a good book which explains the area in Romania known as Transylvania. There is a lot of history and Bronwen Riley does a good job of giving an overview of the culture and people of this area. She explains very well the people who lived and still lived in this area.
There are a lot of pictures/photos, and this helps give the reader a good idea of what Transylvania looks like. What strikes me as interesting is that if there was a comparision photo with some of the farming photos, there wouldn't be much difference to the methods of farming in some cases.
This is a good book for an overview on the people and the history of Transylvania.
