In 1956, Michael and Tili Kosztarab fled their native Hungary in search of refuge and opportunity in the United States. One chapter tells the harrowing tale of how they rescued their five-month-old baby, left behind in Hungary. Kosztarab, partially responsible for the re-initiation of the U.S. Biological Survey, to catalog all the living creatures in North America, has received many honors from his scientific organizations. Illustrated with photographs and pictures of Transylvanian arts and crafts.
