Overview

Cape Verde is an elusive mix of everything: A blend of Portugal, a dash of Brazil, a hint of American and a slice of Africa. Once known as the "Forgotten Islands", the archipelago has emerged to offer everything from isolated windswept beaches,mountainous misty forests, giant salt flats, and black volcanic lava flows to top-of-the line luxury hotels with the latest technology as well as small-town pensions in remote villages, rich in tradition. The most inviting aspect of this country is the charm, candor and genuine hospitality of its people, and the vibrant, rich diversity of each island. They may be known as the Forgotten Islands, but they are anything but forgettable.

Through this book, Callie hopes to offer the reader an informed and personal guide to the fascinating diversity of this island nation.
