"Treading Air follows the life of Ullo Paerand through thirty years of violent upheaval in Estonia." "Ullo is a talented boy with a remarkable memory. Deserted by his father as a child, he is forced to rely on his ingenuity to fight for a better future and, in due course, comes to hold an important position in the Prime Minister's office. Following the Soviet and German occupations, fate disappoints Ullo a second time. Deflected from his honest career, he works with the nationalists for the restoration of the Estonian Republic, but, when offered a chance of escape by a representative of the Vatican, he chooses to remain in his country. Thus he resigns himself to a life of menial labour in an Estonia very different from that of his youth and his dreams, Jaan Kross's narrative unfolds in stories imparted to an unknown "author" by the elderly Ullo. Shortly before the end, a teasing ambiguity suffuses his tale, but Ullo dies before he is able to answer the final question about his life."--BOOK JACKET

The first part in an epic historical trilogy - The Estonian answer to Wolf Hall - by the nation's greatest modern writer Jaan Kross's trilogy dramatises the life of the renowned Livonian Chronicler Balthasar Russow, whose greatest work described the effects of the Livonian War on the peasantry of what is now Estonia. Russow is a diamond in the rough, a thoroughly modern man in an Early Modern world, rising from humble origins to greatness through wit and learning alone. As Livonia is used as a political football by the warring powers of Russia, Sweden, Poland and Lithuania, he continues to climb the greasy pole of power and influence. Even as a boy, Russow has the happy knack of being in the right place and saying the right thing at the right time. He is equally at home acting as friend and confidante to his ambitious patron and as champion for his humble rural relatives. Can anything halt his vertiginous rise? Like most young men he is prey to temptations of the flesh
