Praise for Poland "Engrossing . . . a page-turner in the grand Michener tradition."--The Wash ington Post "A Michener epic is far more than a bedtime reader, it's an experience. Pol and is a monumental effort, a magnificent guide to a better understanding o f the country's tribulations."--Chicago Tribune "Stunning . . . an unmatched overview of Polish history . . . The families themselves come very much alive, and through them, Poland itself."--USA Tod ay "A titanic documentary novel."--The Wall Street Journal
