Blue River, Black Sea

en Limba Engleză Paperback – 04 Feb 2010
A journey along the Danube to the heart of the Europe nobody knows, exploring how much we really know about the "New Europe."

The Danube River runs like an artery from the heart of Europe in the Black Forest to Europe's furthest flung fringes, where it joins the Black Sea in the Danube Delta in Romania. A journey along its length takes in all of European history, and encompasses what today can be called the New Europe.

Andrew Eames here makes a fascinating journey by bicycle, boat and on foot, travelling through areas of intensive heavy industry as well as through rural areas where wolves still roam, seeking answers to some of the most complex problems facing Europeans today.

Passing through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania and the Ukraine, as well as Count Dracula's home, Transylvania, he doesn't shrink from analyzing the difficult issues of race and cultural identity he may encounter along the way.

Recenzii

"Eames has the adventurousness and pleasantly self-deprecating sense of humour that makes a good travel writer. The book's hero is the Danube itself. Few will forget Eames's lament for the demise of the river in the modern era."
— Financial Times
