I enjoyed Tales from Slovak Castles very much. The authors did an excellent joy presenting the tales with the historical backgrounds that accompanied each. --Margaret Slavik, Kenosha, WI
...pretty doggone good book. I gave the book to my son, brother and nephew, and they all agreed. We visited Europe 44 times and visited many castles. These stories made the castles come alive. --Stephen Pastrasek, Alliance, OH
...fantastic! I was thrilled to read the book. I was disappointed that the castle from my parent's village was not included, but the Bibliography at the back led me in the direction to find information on the Internet. --Milan Blaho, Cicero, IN
