ABOUT THIS BOOK
The invulnerable Nikola Suhaj lives a Robin Hood-like existence as he and his band rob travelers and rich Jewish merchants. Nikola seems invulnerable until a new police captain and a generous reward tempt his bandit cohorts into betraying him.
Ivan Olbracht's reputation as one of Czechoslovakia's most important authors stems from his works dealing with Ruthenia and the tensions between the two major ethnic groups of the region: the Ruthenians and the Jews. Weaving myth with realism, Nikola the Outlaw is considered Olbracht's masterpiece.
