Ames Forester


It was the spring of 1938. I had just visited the former Kaiser's hunting lodge at Rominten in East Prussia and my next destination was the Pfeil forest district which borders on the Kurische Haf in northern East Prussia - a most inaccessible spot. If the magic carpet of the Thief of Bagdad had been in my possession, it would have been most convenient in getting to Pfeil. As it was, I changed trains several times, until at last I was riding a narrow-gauge line which covered thirteen miles in two hours, and then I was forced to go afoot. After about two hours of walking I finally arrived at the office of Forstmeister Kramer. ,
