Deakin’s ‘Wildwood’ pt. VI

Gradually, the villages, woods and fields are being repopulated. This corner of Poland has achieved a difficult regeneration, from being a place where everything happened, almost all of it brutal and bloody, to a place where hardly anything happens at all. At the post office, Annette sends a postcard to her father in Australia. He is happier living there, as far as possible from Baligrod and its memories.

– from the late Roger Deakin’s ‘Wildwood – A Journey through Trees’ (pp.230-1)
