The National Park in the Bialowieza Forest

£250.00

Product description

"The Bialowieza Forest Saga" is a fascinating, richly illustrated tale of the primeval forest from the glacial period till the present times. Despite the threat of total destruction it faced more than once in the past millennium, the Bialowieza Forest survived almost miraculously till our times together with thousands of plant and animal species, including the magnificent European bison. Whether it survives the 21st century to remain a source of inspiration for artists, the worksite of researchers and the pride of the Polish and Belarusian nations, as well as a World Heritage site. The author, Simona Kossak, studied biology but she has chosen forestry as her profession. She was born in Cracow but she has chosen Bialowieza as her place of residence. She comes from the famous artistic family. The book has been written to pay the author's debt for her thirty years of happy life in the old forester's lodge called Dziedzinka in the green paradise of the Bialowieza Forest. Depends in large measure on our generation. The book tells about all that and more.
