The third part of the story about the Beskid Mountains and its magnificent nature in the background. This time, the action takes place in extraordinarily challenging times for the Lemkos during resettlements and the „Vistula” operation.

Maria Strzelecka weaves the destinies of people and animals into a beautiful, moving, incredibly empathetic, and wise book, full of tenderly presented details of life in the Beskid village in the 1940s.
