Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book introduces the flavor and personalities of Tuscany with 160 color photographs of landscapes in winter, summer, spring, and fall. Artists have long known of Tuscany's wonderful light and rustic ambiance, and award-winning photographer Meyerowitz (Cape Light) has chosen to capture every aspect of the Tuscan countryside, from traditional landscapes to barren vistas, country farmhouses to village streets, and vineyards to a country kitchen. We see the residents of Tuscany going about their lives in images that speak of hard work, simple living, traditional values, and family. Novelist Barrett, who wrote the introduction for Meyerowitz's At the Water's Edge, provides brief essays on some of the photographs. Her prose is as colorful and picturesque as the images while capturing the warmth of the people. Recommended for public and special libraries.-Karen MacMurray, Cape Coral P.L., FL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
