"Stretching along the southwestern part of the Soviet Union, bordering upon Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Rumania, is a chain of green mountains and a narrow strip of flat country. This is Sub-Carpathia—the youngest of the Ukrainian regions. Matvei Teveiyov—journalist and writer—has walked many a road in this region, staying for long periods in the out-of-the-way villages of Verkhovina - as the mounainous part of the country is called. Verkhovina, Our Land So Dearr—his first big work, was published in 1953. It is a poetic narrative of the Carpathian people's past (the reader perhaps is acquaintedwith this book through our translations of it into English, French and Ger man). The stories included in the volume Hotel in Snegovets are dedicated to Sub-Carpathla's "today," to its woodcutters, ploughmen, raftsmen, carvers—to its simple people and their dreams, their thoughts and their work."
