She was born in Cracow but she has chosen Bialowieza as her place of residence. She comes from the famous artistic family. The book has been written to pay the authors debt for her thirty years of happy life in the old foresters lodge called Dziedzinka in the green paradise of the Bialowieza Forest.The Bialowieza Forest Saga is a fascinating, richly illustrated tale of the primeval forest from the glacial period till the present times.

Despite the threat of total destruction it faced more than once in the past millennium, the Bialowieza Forest survived almost miraculously till our times together with thousands of plant and animal species, including the magnificent European bison.

Whether it survives the 21st century to remain a source of inspiration for artists, the worksite of researchers and the pride of the Polish and Belarusian nations, as well as a World Heritage site, depends in large measure on our generation. The book tells about all that and more.Contents: Introduction- Mammoth and Reindeer Hunters- The Primeval Forest- Werewolf- The Destruction if the Sudovians- Perkun- Zwod- The Beaver- The Royal Falcon- Poachers- A Foray in the Forest- The Wrath of God- The Autumn Fog- She- The Beekeeper Lawrysz- The Emperors of the Forest- The Exploitation- The Year 1812- Bryki- Game Park- The Insurgents of 1863- An Adventure in the Forest- The Hunting Farm- The Protection- The Inventory- The Dream- The Plunder- The Polemic- The Restoration- Déjà vu- The Reichsjagdgebiet- Lekking Grounds- The Anti-Wolf Campaign- A Forester- At the Threshold of the Third Millennium- The Power of Arguments- The Epilogue- Bibliography- Illustrations- Contents
