Overview

*Illustrated
*Includes Table of Contents

At a time when the state of Poland was constantly undergoing political turmoil, Henryk Sienkiewicz wasn’t afraid to ruffle feathers. Having already achieved success in his career around the end of the 19th century, the Polish journalist negatively portrayed the Teutonic Order at a time in which his audience lived under German rule. At the same time, he meticulously included historical language in his works, a sort of celebration of authenticity and the past. He would earn a Nobel Prize in 1905 for "outstanding merits as an epic writer."

Sienkiewicz mastered historical novels that vividly put readers in places as distinct as 17th century Poland and Ancient Rome. He is still well regarded today for novels like "With Fire and Sword", "The Deluge", “Quo Vadis”, and "Fire in the Steppe".

This edition of Sienkiewicz’s In Desert And Wilderness is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures of Sienkiewicz.

I red this book when I was 9 years old. Now I'm 18 and I still love to read it.I read it so many times and every time I read it, I find someting new. Highly recomended.

As a child I read this book not less than 8 times and each beginning was exciting and new. It left so vivid and strong impressions in my young mind that I still have the pleasant sense of excitement only when I think of the beautiful story. It is a must for every young teenager with love for adventure and desire for exploring the wide world (in this case Africa). I definitely place 'In Desert and Wilderness' among the World Literary Treasures which every person should read at least once.
