Via Mala by John Knittel( Book )

266 editions published between 1060 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Via Mala" is a narrow gorge of the Hinterrhein River, a headstream of the Rhine, c.3 1-2 mi (6 km) long, Grisons canton, E Switzerland. Because the Swiss for a long time have been professional neutrals, innkeepers, paid hosts to congresses of tourists, invalids and impotent statesmen, a literary tradition has sprung up that they are a race of small-minded, closefisted, petty burghers, slightly comic but mostly dull." In Via Mala Swiss Author John Knittel goes a long way toward exploding this commercialized tradition, shows that the Swiss, like other people, are human, passionate, beleaguered by all the human vices and virtues. A humane melodrama. Via Mala is written on the socially dangerous and apparently un-Swiss-like theme that the law is blind
