Book recommendation: Non-travel book about the Dolomites

Jump to last reply

Hi, this is sort of a tangential topic, but I am looking for book recommendations prior to a trip to the Dolomites. I like to try to read a book to not only get some context about where I am headed, but also build some excitement for the trip (vacations are expensive - need to stretch out the enjoyment!). Not a travel guide, but I prefer non-fiction. Does not need to be sweeping history or anything like that. For example, I have read:

St. Petersburg - Nicholas & Alexandra by Robert Massie (story of the Romanovs)
Poland - The Zookeeper's Wife (story of a family that hid Jews in their Warsaw zoo during the Nazi occupation)
Japan - Dog Man: An Uncommon Life (story of a man who saved the Akita breed from extinction

Anyone have any suggestions?

My husband is reading "The White War: Life and Death on the Italian Front" about the Great War, so I have that to fall back on. But it is a little battle-intense for me.

Thanks!
