Overview

An eloquent text by bestselling author Nicholas Gage and vivid color photographs of Greece by Barry Brukoff create an unforgettable portrait of this luminous country. Greece is a legendary destination, and anyone who has once fallen under its spell dreams of returning again and again. Here is a marvelous record of this enchanting land, portraying the essence of Greece - its striking sea and landscape, its peoples, its culture and history, and its ancient monuments. From the tip of the Peloponnese to the remote mountain villages of the far north to the islands of the Aegean, Brukoff's brilliant color images and Gage's evocative words delineate the heart of Greece.

Editorial Reviews

Island Magazine
Author Nicholas Cage (of Eleni fame) and photographer Barry Brukoff have teamed up to showcase a luminous place in Greece: Land of Light. Whether discussing the 36 shades of sweetness Greeks can ascribe to a cup of coffee or the omnipresent island cats, Gage portrays his homeland with an insider's insights. Brukoff, who has produced books with John Fowles and Paul Bowles, has been traveling to Greece and its islands (where, he says, the book first began to take shape) for two decades. While the country has changed, Brukoff insists that his images, admittedly idealistic, are still true "for those who have eyes to see," even if that means getting up at dawn before the trappings of tourism unfurl for the day.
