Overview

The ultimate dream book for Francophiles. The orchards of Normandy, the lavenderfields of Provence, the fortified villages of the Dordogne, the heights of Savoy, the gorges of the Tarn, the ch�teaux of the Loire, the coastal villages of the Mediterranean--all these natural and man-made splendors make up the magnificent geographical and cultural tapestry that we know as France. More than any other Western country--apart, perhaps, from Italy--France has succeeded in maintaining a strong traditional way of life in an age of new technology. Michael Busselle's dramatic color photographs and James Bentley's informative commentaries bring this marvelous land vividly to life: its churches and farmhouses, picturesque narrow streets, medieval houses, and ancient fountains, half-timbering in Normandy and the Celtic mystery of the Brittany coast. It celebrates a culture that still retains the highest regard for the good things of life: artifacts well made, kitchen gardens well tended, the small family business, the village shop, robust eating and drinking. Here is the essential France--a fascinating journey to the heart of the true French experience.
