Bermuda: Gardens and Houses
     

Bermuda: Gardens and Houses

by Ian Macdonald-Smith (Photographer), Sylvia Shorto
 

Editorial Reviews

George Cohen
Bermuda is not a single island but a cluster of more than 300 islands adding up to less than 21 square miles. Shorto's lively text traces the history of this self-governing British colony from its founding in 1609, a history marked by slavery (abolished in 1834), a passion for cricket, and a long era of poverty followed by the development of tourism. With more than 200 stunning color photographs by Ian Macdonald-Smith (and a few black-and-white photos from the 1930s), Shorto takes the reader on a tour of this utopia, offering breathtaking views of beaches, harbors, and lagoons, of stately homes with lavish parlors, dining rooms, and kitchens, and of some of the most beautiful subtropical gardens on earth.
