Editorial Review
Written in 1916, A Balkan Freebooter is the sequel to the collaborative project The Luck of Thirteen, which American author and artist JAN GORDON (1884-1944) wrote with his wife, Core Josephine Gordon, about their adventures in Serbia. This is the transcription of a story told to Jan by Petko Moritch, a pseudonym used to protect Jan's acquaintance. Petko was something of Robin Hood in Serbia, falsely charged with murder for having punched an Austrian the day before Austrians came to power. Petko escaped prison and continued to escape each time was captured. He stole from the rich and gave to those who helped him, always eluding capture. A BALKAN FREEBOOTER provides readers with both harrowing adventure and an accurate depiction of the people of Serbia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
