Travels With Ferdinand and Friends: A Centennial Journey Through Austria-Hungary
Mark Eliot Nuckols shares a highly personal account of returning to the land of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, on the occasion of the centennial of Franz Ferdinand's assassination. Although this anniversary is fraught, Nuckols' return is one that is also filled with reunions, memories of years spent in these areas as a student and young man. The tone of this work manages to blend the solemnity with a deep and abiding love for the cultures, the people, the region, and the history of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. Nuckols brings us along on his journey, introduces us to his friends and colleagues. He takes us into his old haunts, introduces us to the food, the celebrations, the music and the passions of this very magical part of the world.
