An international bestseller
Andreas Egger knows every path and peak of his mountain valley, the source of his sustenance, his livelihood--his home.
Set in the mid-twentieth century and told with beauty and tenderness, Robert Seethaler's A Whole Life is a story of man's relationship with an ancient landscape, of the value of solitude, of the arrival of the modern world, and above all, of the moments, great and small, that make us who we are.
