Cindy,

From the wish list, I will be scanning Black Lamb, Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia by Rebecca West

This is an 1100 page book, so don't anyone expect it in the collection quickly, but here's the synopsis...

Rebecca West travelled through Yugoslavia in the 1930s and produced this extraordinary book as a record of her journeys. Far more than a travel book, it provides a background history of the Balkans and a snapshot of the contemporary politics of the region. It is also notable for the vivid portraits of the people and places visited by the author. Many decades after its first publication, BLACK LAMB AND GREY FALCON remains one of the finest introductions to the area. According to Time magazine (12/08/1947), this book made her "indisputably the world's No. 1 woman writer."
