Black Sea SketchesrnBLACK SEA SKETCHES is a travel book written for serious travelers, includingrnarmchair travelers. Although the author may take an occasional swim or walk thernbeaches, the book is much more about the history and prehistory, the culture and therncontemporary scene than about recreational opportunities. It is the kind of book yournwould want to read before or during your own travel in these fascinating countries.rnThe five countries—Ukraine, Rumania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Georgia—often sharernmilitary and economic history, but cultural contrasts abound: different alphabets andrnlanguages, different religions. While most of Ukraine, Rumania, Bulgaria, and Georgiarnembrace the Orthodox faith, Turkey is largely Muslim, as is part of the Crimean population.rnAll five of the countries reflect, especially architecturally, the common past ofrnancient Greece and, most of them, of the later Genoan commercial empire.rnBlack SrnSketchesrn^^^^^^ fl 1rn[g^ ‘ 1. ‘^ZSWIii^^^Mfc^lrnWilliam MillsrnRising above the glittering monuments of thernpast, however, are the people Mills met andrnthe stories of their lives, often of great couragernunder pressure and of generosity to a strangerrnand a traveler.rnComments about other works of William Millsrn”William Mills’ stories draw the reader deeplyrninto the hearts and minds of men and womenrnto reveal the essential nature of Man in a worldrngoverned by forces so primal there is no resistingrntheir call, no mitigation of their judgment.”rn—Gordon Weaverrn”Seldom have I found a contemporary poet sornintensely and humanly convincing.
