Book - 2010
Rate this:

Though steeped in a rich and ancient past, Calabria had been lost from view when Norman Douglas visited in the early 1900s. Within Douglas's vibrant account of his adventures is woven the rich history--from Greek settlers and Roman conquerors to the powerful Ndrangheta organized crime family--that has shaped the land, language, culture, and people of a place that Douglas grew to adore. Witty, erudite, and elegant, Old Calabria is a literary classic, acclaimed as much for its sparkling prose as for its exquisite portrait of Italy's most unpredictable and colorful province.
