A firsthand account from the third generation. Finding Slovenia draws upon the author`s own experience and study as well as a long familiarity with the country. Designed to provide the reader with an appreciation for the history, culture and landscape of a land that has been at the crossroads of time for the past 60, 000 years, the book also gives the reader practical advice for hiking the Alps, rejuvenating at thermal spas, finding local specialties and planning castle-stays. Learning intertwines with enjoyment.
Jacqueline Stewart`s view in the upcoming Slovenia book is that of a native granddaughter. All four of the author`s grandparents emigrated from the Slovenian section of Yugoslavia at the turn of the 20th century, but it was not until 1967 that she returned to their homeland. Two years later she spent a year at the University in Ljubljana to study the Slovenian language. Since then she has returned regularly, watching the country gain its independence in 1991, entry to the European Union in 2004, and assuming EU leadership in 2008.
The book has been published by Slovenia`s largest publishing company. Mladinska knjiga. Although the country of Slovenia publishes about three times the number of books per capita as the US, this will be their first book published in English that is written by a native English speaker. Most books published in Slovenia are translations, of high quality and low volume.
