Autumn's Readings

Thursday, 08 September 2016

Following summer reads on the beach or on the grass, we recommend reads for the beginning of the autumn term with some studious books:

"Wilderei im rhätischen Dreiländereck" - "Poaching in the Raetian region – Cross-border studies tracking until Tibet"

This book (304 p.) was written by Heinrich Haller, Director of the Swiss National Park and will be published in October 2016 in German language and in 2017 in Italian language. A presentation of the book is planned for the 12th October 2016, 8.30pm, in Zernez/CH.
