Henry Hudson – a Dutch explorer, explored the Atlantic shore and sailed up the river that was later named for him – the Hudson. By the 1750's there were thirteen English colonies along the eastern coast of North America. Virginia and Jamestown. In 1606 some merchants in London formed a private business called the Virginia Company. The English settlements on the Atlantic coast grew into thirteen colonies. The colonies can be divided into three regions: the New England colonies, the Middle colonies and the Southern colonies. The New England colonies were Massachusetts', Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire.

On the trail of wolves, we are led deep into the dark forests, misty hills, and intriguing history of this fabled landscape, where encounters with wolves, bears, and lynx; werewolves, vampires, and witches; lumberjacks, shepherds, and recluses; poets, tyrants, and saints; deities, demons, and sirens; and such imposing historical figures as Attila the Hun, Vlad the Impaler, and Volodymyr the Great provide broad.

What I love most about Rebecca Patrick's "Finding Henry: A Journey into Eastern Europe" is the emotionally compelling journey Rebecca takes the reader on as well as the geographical one. We learn bits and pieces of who Rebecca is--she tells us just what she wants us to know about herself, yet leaves us wanting to know more. I found myself anxious to read on, page after page, chapter after chapter, in the hope of uncovering more of Rebecca's captivating and intuitive personality. If ever a book sounded a clarion call for a sequel, this is one! What happened next? Did Rebecca ever see Henry again? What about all those intriguing folks back home? And I love her passion for a part of the world that probably doesn't inspire a lot of positivity for most people--armchair travelers and the real world travelers alike. I want to go to Eastern Europe and see what Rebecca sees, to see if I would feel the same about a part of the world that most of us see only on the news and in usually a negative light. I expect I would be as captivated and enchanted as Rebecca--She has paved the way! Thanks, Rebecca, for a book well written! Keep traveling and, by all means, keep writing!
I bought this book a couple of weeks ago and so far have talked five of my friends into reading it. We have all thought it was "awesome." (Not a word a lot of us women in our 50's use!) For the reviewer who said that Rebecca came across as immature, you were completely missing the point. I, for one, felt like it was an unorthodox coming of age story. She didn't exactly start out immature or inexperienced, but she did begin her journey a little jaded and perplexed. It was beautiful watching her progress unfold as her journey unravelled.

And the love story aspect...It IS a love story at heart-but not between the people that you think it's going to be. Her love and loyalty to Chris (elusive in the book but I heard that she is contemplating writing their story in the future) were overwhelming and I could feel her pain as she worked through her grief. The only problem I had with the love portions of the trip was that there weren't enough of them! The other reviewer said that she was "overzealous" in her quest, but I, for one, didn't think she was overzealous enough!!! I was rooting her on and encouraging her, even when it meant that to do so would have been cheating on her boyfriend back home.

Now I am impatiently waiting for the sequel. What happened to Mark? Did she ever hear from Chris or his family again? And the ex? So many questions left unanswered. Our local paper did a feature on her and said that she has another non-ficiton coming out next May and a fiction next fall and I can't wait.

To sum it all up-read it! You'll be surprised.
Once I started Finding Henry I couldn't put it down until I was finished. Rebecca Patrick has a way with words that puts you right there with her. You can feel her pain, her sadness, her joy and her laughter, and sense her goodness as she travels alone. She transforms you to another place and time with her insightfulness. From the ice cream in Split, Croatia, to the Begovic's Boarding House in Dubrovnik, throught the tunnel museum in Sarajavo to the crepes in Prague and the peacefulness of Cesky Krumlov, you're there with her every step of the way.

I loved the honesty and the passion she showed for the people, the places, the food, and the experience! You'll love it too!
Wow! What a great book. What a brave, brave, girl. I don't know what I was expecting when I read it-perhaps a book of hotel and restaurant reviews. I admit that I knew nothing about the countries that she visited before I read the book and therefore had no desire to visit them, but after reading her memoirs I am all set to buy my plane ticket to Sarajevo. I loved getting to know all of the characters that she met along the way and the quasi romance that she experienced. (Still not sure that the Mark guy was right in the head though!) All in all, I would definitely recommend it. It's NOT your typical travelogue at all. I could have read it in one setting, it was so engrossing.
I found this book slow, and difficult to read. The difficult to read part is due to the publishing itself, I felt like I was reading a magazine. The pictures, which might have otherwise been attractive, were grainy and didn't transfer well into print.

The book itself is slow and somewhat unbelievable, this is supposed to be actual events, isn't it? While I have seen the building decorated in bones, I have never been chased by Gypsies (and I doubt she has either). And while I applaud her effort at helping others, it should not be done for the praise it will raise.
I bought this book on a recomendation from a friend, as I am very interested in travel. I expected a normal travelogue, but got so much more. Rebecca's story is so engaging and touching as her journey thru Europe expands so does her journey to self discovery. I felt as if I were there with her and could not wait to see what would happen next. They say truth is stranger than fiction, but in this case the truth was much more entertaining than many fictional books I've read recently. I highly recomend this book to anyone who loves travel or romance!
While I felt that the pictures in this book were amazing, I felt it was lacking in many other areas. I agree that this was a "coming of age" story and it was supposed to show the changes that she made in herself, but I didn't see any. When she asks herself if she has become that shallow or if she is being a b**** , that should have been a moment of growth. It didn't seem so. It was however mildly entertaining to follow her story and, as I said the pictures are very nice....I think she missed her calling.
