The most incisive writing about Switzerland from the world’s most creative minds: from Tolkien to Tolstoy, Petrarch to Prince, Julius Caesar to George Sand. They wrote of wars and money, poverty and peaks, dances and prisons, wolves and fleas. “O Switzerland!” deftly weaves together over 450 first-hand accounts to paint a dazzling and disturbing portrait of an enigmatic land.
"2000 years of Swiss tourism: ‘O Switzerland!’ is an impressive and illuminating tour de force through time and space."
-Wolfgang Koydl, bestselling author of Die Besserkönner: Was die Schweiz so besonders macht
