Certainly not for the faint of heart, this book contains histories of Transylvania's distant past....histories that go beyond the well-worn tales of Vlad the impaler. This book inspired Bram Stoker and most likely scared the britches off of generations since the time of its printing. If you have the stomach for some of the darker chapters, it is a vibrant history meticulously collect by an English woman who loved the country and lived during a time when it was still a deadly place to live.

It's very interesting to read a book that was written in 1888 about a place that hasn't changed all that much with the time.

After I finished reading it, all I could think about is going back to visit the Carpathian Mountains and Transylvannia in the Spring.

Winter was Magical and I can't imagine everything in Bloom.
