Book DescriptionWinner of Pushcart's 19th annual Editor's Book Award. After the fall of Communism, Joseph Hurka traveled to Prague, where his father had fought in the Underground against the Czech-Stalinist government. As the son walks in his father's steps, he uncovers a hidden past: he learns of his father's brutal imprisonment, his fortunate release, and his fierce resistance work. Fields of Light is a loving tribute to a father, a tale of personal sacrifice and endurance?and of history reborn after extraordinary totalitarian efforts to erase it. 16 b/w photographs.
