Poland is a historical novel written by James A. Michener and published in 1983 detailing the times and tribulations of three Polish families (the Lubonski family, the Bukowski family, and the Buk family) across eight centuries, ending in the then-present day (1981).
Michener was hired by a television company to travel to a foreign country to shoot a documentary. He was offered support to go anywhere in the world and Michener decided to make the trip to Poland. Following this, Michener made several trips back to Poland and conducted extensive study of Poland's history and culture. He began writing the book in 1979 and it was published four years later.
Like Michener's other works, he includes an acknowledgments section at the beginning of the book; however due to the political turmoil in Poland at the time, Michener decided not to include the names of the people he traveled with for fear of persecutions against them. He writes: "Normally, as I have done in my other novels, I would list their names, their impressive occupations, their achievements in research and scholarship, but I cannot ascertain whether in the present climate this would hurt or help them."
That's according to Post OfficeTravelMoney, which compared the cost of typical city-break items in 40 different cities – including a range of drinks, an evening meal for two with wine, two nights' three-star weekend accommodation, sightseeing and city transport.
Poland, which had a Week 1 bye and then didn’t have an opponent last weekend after Bucksport had to cancel due to COVID-19 concerns, was due to host Madison-Carrabec this weekend but both Madison and Carrabec high schools are in remote learning and the Bulldogs already had to cancel its Week 2 game against Lisbon due to players quarantining.
