“This is the story of how I went to Kosova in October of 1994. As a Quaker, writer, and children’s rights advocate, I decided to make myself a primary source of information, a first-hand observer, a witness for peace. In Kosova there is a unique situation — poisonous yet queerly triumphant — human nature deadlocked in a mutual battle of extremes. The high ground and the low ground seized by Serb and Albanian, grudgingly held onto year after year. No one will give an inch.”
In this self-published memoir of her time in Kosovo, author Alice Mead shares the dangers she encountered and reflects on the beauty of this unique country and it people.
