Excerpt: Chapter One. OVER THE BORDER AT Semlin I still was encompassed by the scenes and the sounds of familiar life; the din of a busy world still vexed and cheered me; the unveiled faces of women still shone in the light of day. Yet, whenever I chose to look southward, I saw the Ottoman?s fortress austere, and darkly impending high over the vale of the Danube historic Belgrade. I had come, as it were, to the end of this wheel?going Europe, and now my eyes would see the splendour and havoc of the East.
