The Alps: A Human History From Hannibal to Heidi and Beyond

Stars: 3.5/5

Location: The Alps, including France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia

Sub-genre: History, road-trip

Publication Date: 2017

Recommended for anyone traveling (or wanting to travel) through the Alps. Great weaving together of the author’s trip and descriptions of what life is like there today along with different stories of the human history of the area. A bit too much description of driving up and down steep roads, and the description holds true in that there is almost no natural history of the mountains which I would have enjoyed, but overall a fun read.
