SOMETHING OF MY COUNTRY by H.R.H. Prince William of Sweden


Email this review


Prince William's warmth for and pride in his country is pleasantly evident in his philosophic musings on the qualities of nature and man in various sections of the land. The Prince asks that his book be regarded as ""a collection of fragments of a mirror"" of the country, and he seeks to give the essence of the provinces from Lapland to the North to Skale to the South. Along his way -- the Prince wonders as he wanders -- he stops to talk with the fishermen and craftsmen, to discuss a little the foremost produce and characteristics of the area. The book is a pleasant meditation, a book of appreciation for the land and the people, with pride in regard to its blessings, its history, its love of freedom.
