A long-time fan of numismatics from Pomerania, Mr Marek Wenta has published his own book! 

Marek Wenta's book fits perfectly into the tradition of maritime literature. We have here descriptions of a rough sea, adventures in exotic countries, hard work of seafarers day and night, and a description of the state of consciousness of an average member of the crew and the one who stands out above the sailing average. However, this is not the most important thing in the book Wenty. From the first sentence, we are dealing here, on the one hand, with a documentary, describing in an extremely precise manner the historical time in which the main character and at the same time the narrator lives, and on the other hand, with a conscious and deliberate message full of humour and distance. "Against the Snowmen" is in fact not only a sailor's story, but also a very interesting story of a man who, living at a particular time, does not forget that one should not "go crazy" and give in to what he thinks, often a silent majority.
