Read an Excerpt

'Portugal's astonishingly beautiful landscapes range from the simplicity of the Alentejo's vast arid space and strong, pure colors to the intricacy of the Minho's lush, drowsy smallholdings. The provinces state their identities on every street corner and in every field: slim delicate chimneys or no chimneys at all; dogs for herding goats, or wearing nail-studded collars to protect them from wolves; the smell of pine, or eucalyptus, or the sea.'
