Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Trish Rempen
12 Life Lessons - taught with the help of rivers, moving through the course of history - all in Tuscany.

What a great format - and what a nice change in a book about Tuscany! Episodes include Hannibal, Dante, Machiavelli, early tribes and later invaders. (I was surprised to realize how the different cities had such different languages - almost different people entirely.)

The book moves along briskly, the stories are gripping, and the people engaging.
