Shelves: historical-fiction , novels , russian The Wild Fields was their name, the broad plains that stretched beyond the turbulent waters of the Dneiper River, those Central Ukrainian steppes that the Zaporozhian Cossacks once called home. Now, however, if you go looking for those plains, you will find nothing but water, water trapped by the dams of the Kahkhova Reservoir. But in the 17th century, The Wild Fields were flowing with Cosssacks, running as dangerous and free as the rapids of the Dneiper. Originally a people of the steppes, related to the Khazars, the Cossacks developed into a voluntary tribe—accepting into their ranks runaway serfs, escaped criminals, war refugees, even a Tartar or two—bound together by a bellicose nature, steadfast loyalty, and a fierce pride in their status as warriors and in the truth of their Greek Orthodox faith. They battled against and occasionally for the Catholic kings of Poland, the tsars of Russia, and the khans of Crimea, showing themselves to be formidable enemies, dangerous allies. The protagonist of Taras Bulba is one of these Zaporozhian Cossacks, and the novella tells the tale of a great campaign that the Cossacks once fought against the Poles.
