9780140095241: Granite Island : A Portrait Of Corsica

Recounting the archaic beliefs of rural Corsica, with its witchcraft and its vendetta system, viewing Genoese architecture, or commenting on the modern "pleasure invasion", this book also evokes the scenery, the mountains and olive trees, the heady scent of the maquis and the austere beauty of the granite villages of Corsica. This book won the Heinemann Prize.

Product Description:

Granite Island: A Portrait of Corsica

From the Publisher:

A classic of travel writing -- new to Classics, with an introduction by Rolli Lucarotti. Conjuring a fast-vanishing world of unbroken tradition, bandits, spirits and visionaries in evocative prose, Granite Island is a valuable historical record of a highly individualistic culture and a luminous work of travel writing.
