Barry Lopez's six favorite books about unfamiliar places

Barry Lopez is the author of two collections of essays, several story collections, Arctic Dreams, for which he received the National Book Award, Of Wolves and Men, a National Book Award finalist, and Crow and Weasel, a novella-length fable. His new book is Horizon.

One of the author's six favorite books about unfamiliar places, as shared at The Week magazine:
Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin by Timothy Snyder (2010).

Many people in the West remain innocent of the full horror of World War II because they know little of what happened in Eastern Europe. Fourteen million people died there. Snyder's account is both a staggering indictment and an eloquent elegy.
