SWISSTORY
THE UNTOLD, BLOODY, AND ABSOLUTELY REAL HISTORY OF SWITZERLAND
Laurie Theurer
Synopsis
Finally, the real history of Switzerland for clever kids and clever kids-at-heart: dukes slaughtered by filthy peasants, innocent "witches" hung up by their necks, secret gold, female mountaineers and, of course, all those murderous cows. This is not the fake history of Heidi and William Tell, but Swisstory - from ancient cave people right up to women's right to vote. Swisstory is outrageous, fascinating, gruesome - and completely true.

I'm ten times more likely to buy something with Swiss in the title. I lived in Switzerland for nine months and loved it. I"d love to learn more of its history!

If you're looking for a nice little book about chocolate, cowbells, and edelweiss...this is not that book! I learned a lot about the real history of Switzerland and I cannot wait to share it with you.
