"In this collection of stories the author offers us his personal experience, he does not attempt to explain or interpret the magical phenomena he has witnessed. The text is accompanied by outstanding photographs which, apart from their visual interest, are intended to bring reality and immediacy to these events. Images of people from distant places, of events which have their origins deep in the past, flash before the reader's eyes as if they were happening at that very interest.
At the end of the book the reader will be able to perceive the common thread which binds these episodes together and will perhaps realise that it is the same thread which binds together the facts and events of the world today."
