  8vo hardcover 345pp colour illus. very good, outer page edges browned, owner's inscription on half-title. / very good d/w. For four years, Brian Keenan and John McCarthy were incarcerated in a Lebanese dungeon. From the blank outlook of a tiny cell, with just each other and a few volumes of an ancient American encyclopaedia to sustain them, they could only wander the wide open spaces of their imagination. To displace the ugly confines of their existence, they imagined walking in the High Andes and across the wastes of Patagonia. Five years after their release, Brian and John chose to travel together again to see how the reality of Chile matched their imagination and to revisit their past experiences. Between Extremes is the story of that journey.

Wrong About Japan
CAREY, Peter
ISBN: 1740513258
Vintage January 1, 2004  2004 
  8vo softcover 121pp very good. French flaps. For Peter Carey, a trip to Japan with his twelve-year-old son Charley would be a unique opportunity to share and learn something about his son's passion for Japanese comics and animated film, otherwise known as manga and anime. Convinced that there is 'a whole history and culture hidden between the frames', Carey hopes that this journey will help him to break the skin of Japanese culture. Charley, on the other hand, simply wants to buy cool manga. Either way, Carey looks forward to forging some indelible memories with his thoughtful, reticent son. And while some of the memories they create are not those that Carey might have wished for - such as Charley's ill-concealed boredom when forced to sit through four hours of traditional Japanese theatre, and Carey's own less-than-joyful reaction to Sega World - nonetheless it's an unforgettable and precious time, a time Carey considers a privilege, most especially for the pleasure of sharing his son's enchanted response to the adventure.

Skating to Antarctica
Diski, Jenny.
ISBN: 1862070164
London Granta Books 1997  1997 
  8vo. hardcover. 250pp. This travel journal traces a personal journey to Antarctica. For over 30 years Jenny Diski was content to leave the question as to whether her mother was alive or dead unanswered. Not knowing the fate of the violent woman she last saw shortly after her father's death in 1966 filled her with a sense of relief rather than of loss. Then, just as Diski is planning a trip to the dream world of ice, her own teenage daughter decides to investigate what had happened to her crazy, missing maternal grandmother. Diski's unexamined desire to travel to the whiteness of Antarctica becomes a more complicated journey than she expected as cabin 532 of the Russiancrewed ship takes her further than just the world of icebergs. She also voyages back into the faded landscape and closedoff world of her childhood to her distraught mother, her conman of a father and a child called Jennifer. Her mother had taken Jennifer ice skating from the age of two, hoping for an ice princess as a daughter. What she got was something icier. Jenny Diski is the author of "Nothing Natural", "Rainforest", "Like Mother", "Then Again", Happily Ever After", "Monkey's Uncle" and "The Dream Mistress, as well as a collection of short stories called "The Vanishing Princess". nn From the Back Cover n "Funny, stinging....Pairing an Outward Bound excursion with memoir's traditional selfexamination creates a surprising hybrid of the two genres. In Diski's hands, it makes for a better mousetrap indeed." nnMaria Flook, New york Times Book Review nn"Brilliant, hilarious, and deeply disturbing....What makes her book so unusual is the graceful acuity with which she writes and the quality of her mind: its intelligence and humoura kind of springy, buoyant inventiveness." nnFrancine Prose, Elle nn"A... read more very good. / very good d/w.

Valley of the Casbahs a Journey Across the Moroccan Sahara
Tayler, Jeffrey
Little, Brown UK 2003 
 Hardcover 335pp, photo section amidships, 650g packed to post. The Draa River valley, where Morocco meets the Sahara, is a place of astonishing natural beauty, jewelled with the remains of the ancient casbahs of ochre-coloured clay. From the moonscape gorges of the Anti-Atlas mountains to the mosaic of dunes that marks the domain of the Bedouin, it is an area of sumptuous oases and searing desert.In Valley of the Casbahs, Jeffrey Tayler describes his epic trip to follow the Draa from source to sea, travelling in nomadic style on foot and camel. It is a journey threaded with danger of all kinds: Tayler's immediate predecessor on the route was found dead of thirst in the desert; then there are the unexploded mines, the restricted military zones and the nearby ongoing war. And Tayler is hindered as much as helped by his companions: his argumentative and occasionally manipulative guides Hassan and Mbari, and the temperamental trio of camels.  Excellent/Excellent

I Came, I Saw An Autobiography
Lewis, Norman

 Hardcover In this magnificent autobiography, Norman Lewis recaptures the years which saw him changed from a stammering schoolboy into a writer for whom, after the war, travel became an indispensable stimulant. Just under 500g for post, 391 crisp pp. review >>>> 'One of the most accomplished of all travel writers, a foreign correspondent of distinction, a novelist of standing... A delightful set of memoirs and a wonderful read' "Daily Telegraph " >> I Came I Saw (Picador 1994) is an extended issue of 'Jackdaw cake' which is subtitled ‘An Autobiography’, between inverted commas, we might think of the book as ‘unreliable memoirs’. The first two parts of the book, about his childhood, are written in a strain of hyperbole, sometimes as pleasingly Welsh as Dylan or Gwyn Thomas. Before we reach the third section, about his pre-war adventures among Arabs, Cubans and Sicilians, we have been astonished by his weird boyhood in Carmarthen and Enfield, where his experiences seem scarcely less bizarre and exotic. <<< If this isn't enough to whet your appetite it may be time for a Bex & a good lie down.  Excellent/Excellent

Barrow's Boysis a spellbinding account of perilous journeys to uncharted areas under the most challenging conditions. Fergus Fleming captures the passion for exploration that led a band of men into situations that would humble today's bravest adventurers. After the Napoleonic wars, John Barrow, Second Secretary to the Admiralty, launched the most ambitious exploration program the world has ever seen. For the next thirty years, his teams of elite naval officers went on missions to fill the blanks that littered the atlases of the day. While many of the journeys failed, Barrow and his men ultimately opened Africa to the world, discovered Antarctica, and pried apart the mandibles of the Arctic. Many of the missions are considered the greatest in history, but have never before been collected into one volume that captures the full sweep of Barrow's program. review>>> If you like reading about exploration this is a great book for you. Fleming details how certain expeditions were approved and then what happened on them. It is history at its best. I really enjoyed this book.  Ex-Library Very Good/Good/Good

In Brussels and Paris young Emma was educated in convent schools and studied music without success. The family soon thereafter moved to London where Emma was 15 when she learned to speak English.

TENT LIFE IN TIGERLAND and Sport and Work on the Nepaul Frontier
Inglis, The Hon. James M.L.A.
A. Hutchison & Son, Sydney  1888 First American Edition
 Bound Pictorial Hard Cover Described as "Twelve Years" Sporting Reminiscences of a pioneer Planter in an Indian Frontier District"....a sample extract > -Sanctity and pretensions of the Brahmins--Their power on the wane--Progress of modem thought--An enlightened Hindoo on the decadence of priestcraft--Beneficence of British rule. It is a trite observation that "one half the world does not know how the other half live," and certainly it is very applicable in regard to many of the modes of livelihood practised in what the poet calls the "gorgeous East." To the student of human nature, or to a contemplative philosopher, the mere nomenclature of callings in the Indian census would give rise to many curious speculations. There is, for instance, the Haddick, or Bone-setter, corresponding to our veterinary surgeon, but with this difference, that the Indian bone-setter relies chiefly on the efficacy of certain mantras or charms, and curious medicaments which have been handed down to him through a long series of generations, and which are supposed to possess some occult virtue, which, when applied under certain conditions which are rigidly prescribed by tradition, will effect a cure.  Good to Very Good

Voyage to Desolation Island
Kauffmann, Jean-Paul
Harvill Press  2001 
 Hardcover Voyage to Desolation Island by Jean-Paul Kauffmann - Kauffmann, the author and literary explorer, follows in the footsteps of the eighteenth-century sailor Yves-Joseph Kerguelen, who gave his name to the archipelago he discovered in the southern Indian Ocean. It remains part of the French Southern and Antarctic Territories. When he made his discover, Kerguelen was convinced he had found Hell and could not bring himself to go ashore. It was left to Captain Cook two years later to set foot on the principal landmass, to name it Desolation Island and its grey beach Christmas Harbour, and to describe the towering black arch that would later astound every sailor who saw it. Where better than in this isolated spot to plumb the depths of one's own solitude? A truly desolate place, littered with the abandoned, wind-and-rain-lashed remnants of failed expeditions; its weather treacherous, capricious, unforgiving. But there are those who have adapted to the harsh conditions of Desolation Island as successfully as its unique flora and fauna. Why are there so many scientists here? What are they up to? And what is the shadow hanging over the reputation of Yves-Joseph Kerguelen? How did he disgrace himself? These are but some of the questions Kauffmann asks as he explores one of the loneliest points on the globe in his own quest to see for himself and famous arch of Kerguelen. 177 crisp pp & less than 500g to post.  Excellent/Very Good/Very Good

The Places in Between
Stewart, Rory
Picador UK  
 Paperback The Places in Between by Stewart is some 324 crisp pp & less than 500g to post. In January 2002 Rory Stewart walked across Afghanistan-surviving by his wits, his knowledge of Persian dialects and Muslim customs, and the kindness of strangers. By day he passed through mountains covered in nine feet of snow, hamlets burned and emptied by the Taliban, and communities thriving amid the remains of medieval civilizations. By night he slept on villagers' floors, shared their meals, and listened to their stories of the recent and ancient past. Along the way Stewart met heroes and rogues, tribal elders and teenage soldiers, Taliban commanders and foreign-aid workers. He was also adopted by an unexpected companion-a retired fighting mastiff he named Babur in honor of Afghanistan's first Mughal emperor, in whose footsteps the pair was following. Through these encounters-by turns touching, con-founding, surprising, and funny-Stewart makes tangible the forces of tradition, ideology, and allegiance that shape life in the map's countless places in between.  Very Good/None issued

My Venice and Other Essays
Donna Leon,
ISBN: 9780802122803
Grove Press, New York, 2013. 
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. . Donna Leon's wildly popular novels starring Venetian Commissario Guido Brunetti have been praised for their intricate plots and gripping narratives, but also for their insight into the culture, politics, family life, and history of Venice, one of the world's most treasured cities and Leon's home for over thirty years. Leon's books open the doors to a private Venice, beyond the reach of the millions of international travelers who delight in the city's canals, food, and art every year. My Venice and Other Essays is a treat for lovers of Italy and La Serenissima. Collected here are over fifty funny, charming, passionate, and insightful essays that range from battles over garbage in the canals to troubles with rehabbing Venetian real estate. Leon shares episodes from her life in Venice, explores her love of opera, and recounts tales from in and around her country house in the mountains. With poignant observations and humor, she also explores her family history and former life in New Jersey, and the idea of the Italian man. 222 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is available and ready to be shipped.. A compulsively readable account of a journey to the Congo - a country virtually inaccessible to the outside world - vividly told by a daring and adventurous journalist. Ever since Stanley first charted its mighty river in the 1870s, the Congo has epitomized the dark and turbulent history of a failed continent. However, its troubles only served to increase the interest of Daily Telegraph correspondent Tim Butcher, who was sent to cover Africa in 2000. Before long he became obsessed with the idea of recreating Stanley's original expedition - but travelling alone. Despite warnings Butcher spent years poring over colonial-era maps and wooing rebel leaders before making his will and venturing to the Congo's eastern border. He passed through once thriving cities of this country and saw the marks left behind by years of abuse and misrule. Almost, 2,500 harrowing miles later, he reached the Atlantic Ocean, a thinner and a wiser man. Butcher's journey was a remarkable feat. But the story of the Congo, vividly told in Blood River, is more remarkable still. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Since the body of St James was discovered at Compostela in the 9th century, the road along which pilgrims have trod for hundreds of years to visit his shrine has been immersed in history, both spiritual and social. In this book the author walks through France and Spain soaking up the spiritual atmosphere, sampling the food and wine, admiring the architectural styles and learning the legends. In the 12th century a French pilgrim, Amery Picaud of Poitou wrote a guide to the four major routes to Compostela. These four routes pass through some of the most beautiful cities of Europe, all of them enriched by the countless pilgrims who make their way through them. Following these routes, the author with the aid of photographs allows the reader to make this historic pilgrimage without ever leaving home. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. "Reading Pickering," said Smithsonian, "is like taking a walk with your oldest, wittiest friend." In Walkabout Year, Samuel Pickering, the professor who inspired the movie Dead Poets Society, provides an intimate, engaging chronicle of his family's year in Western Australia. The reader is pulled into Pickering's tight family circle and off on an intriguing trip to another land. With humor, skill, and insight, Pickering describes the educational system his three children experienced; the family's journeys from one area of the country to another as he lectured; and the people--both academics and nonacademics--he encountered. He compares the flora, fauna, and economics to those in America, and reveals much else about daily life in a new country. As a result, Walkabout Year is part travelogue, part reflection on the differences between two cultures, and part autobiography. As Smithsonian stated, "Pickering has created his own comfortable world, and it is always a pleasure to slip into his company for a time." Readers will feel a strong bond with the family and as if they too have been thoroughly exposed to the intriguing world of Australia. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Razed to the ground four times in its short history, the city of Darwin, Australia, has picked itself up out of the debris to not only rebuild but grow. Darwin has known catastrophes and resurrections; it has endured misconceived projects and birthed visionaries. To write about her home town, Tess Lea waded knee-deep in memories of the city, including those of her family and her own. The story begins in 1974, when Cyclone Tracy shattered Darwin, and Lea was a little girl. Then it takes us back to the wild times of early settlement, explores the backstory of the White Australia policy, paints a vivid picture of the bombing of Darwin during World War II, and guides us to Australia's militarized future, led by Darwin, sitting as it does under the largest aerial defense training space in the world. Lyrical and visceral, Tess Lea's ode to her hometown is suffused with the textures, colors, scents and the many gritty realities that beset this tough, fragile, magical, foolhardy, and unique place.

Today an explorer can make a phone call from the top of Mount Everest and geo-locate himself in the thickest rain forest or the widest desert. Yet despite these advances, few modern adventures get close to the charm and romance of "The Desert Road to Turkestan," "Mysterious Temples of the Jungle," and "Airplanes Come to the Isles of Spice." In those bygone days, the pages of National Geographic were as close as most people could get to high adventure and faraway lands-and here's a chance to recapture them. Introduced by brief essays that provide context and perspective, these engaging, engrossing selections speak for themselves-and trace the National Geographic Society's growth as it explored the unknown and brought it to readers eager for knowledge of "the world and all that is in it."

This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. The author – a seasoned correspondent – took to travelling by rail, road and sea. Consulting fortune-tellers and shamans wherever he went, he learnt to understand and respect older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. William Shawcross in the Literary Review praised Terzani for ‘his beautifully written adventure story… a voyage of self-discovery… He sees fortune-tellers, soothsayers, astrologers, chiromancers, seers, shamans, magicians, palmists, frauds, men and women of god (many gods) all over Asia and in Europe too… Almost every page and every story celebrates the mystical and the unknowable. It is a fabulous story of renewal and change… Terzani is already something of a legend. He has written magnificently all his life. Never better than now.’ Yes, the fortune-teller did save him from an air-crash in Cambodia. Looking back afterwards, Terzani reckoned that ‘I was marked for death and instead I was reborn.’ Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel & Places; ISBN: 0006550711.

In each case the book describes how the route came into being, who used it and why, the glory of the lanscape it traverses, and the historical relics that can still be seen.

This BOOK IS IN STOCK and READY TO MAIL NOW. Your book when ordered will be securely packed and promptly dispatched by Great Southern Books. A follow-up to Tim Bowden's "Penelope Goes West", this time covering the intriguing adventures of Tim, Ros, Penelope (the car) and The Manor (the caravan) as they travel across the grandeur and spectacle of Broome, the Kimberleys and various points south and west. Bowden's fascination with rarely seen Aboriginal rock art is a major theme in his continuing love affair with Australia. On their journey Tim and wife, Ros, explore the Kimberley by land and sea, where dramatic 12-metre tides guard coastal locations unchanged by time - still as 17th-century buccaneer William Dampier first described them. For three months, Tim and Ros and their trusty four-wheel-drive, Penelope, travelled from the improbably sculptured Bungle Bungles to the Pilbara and the wildflower-filled Mid West. Bowden's enthusiasm for history is clear and his book is peppered with stories of present and past, ill-fated settlements and expeditions, tragic tourist deaths and the grandeur of Australia's intriguing, spectacular north-west.

The Olive Tree: A Personal Journey Through Mediterranean Olive Groves

This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. The Olive Tree charts Carol Drinkwater's colorful and often dangerous journey in search of the routes that olive cultivation has taken over the centuries. Set during a springtime Mediterranean that is evocative and perennial, it is above all a tale of our time. Troubled by challenges her own South of France farm is experiencing-attack by a virulent pest, the premature ripening of the trees' fruits-Carol realizes new approaches to farming are becoming essential. Traditional customs have been set aside while the use of excessive chemicals is putting the harvests of her crops (and others) at risk. Changing patterns within the world's climate demand urgent action. Carol's quest takes her south through Spain-now the home of more olive trees than anywhere else on earth-Morocco, Algeria, and Italy before she finally returns to her farm. As a woman traveling alone, she is frequently vulnerable and never more so than in Algeria where, on her arrival, terrorist bombs are exploding, devastating the capital. Through her travels and vivid, sometimes unlikely encounters, Carol confronts some of the critical issues of our time-land-care and the harsh realities of diminishing water reserves-and ends her momentous journey in the company of olive growers whose vision for the future is remarkable and ingenious.

Notes From a Small Island

All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson took the decision to move back to the States for a few years, to let his kids experience life in another country, to give his wife the chance to shop until 10 p.m. seven nights a week, and, most of all, because he had read that 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another, and it was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of the nation's public face and private parts (as it were), and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite, a military hero whose dying wish was to be kissed by a fellow named Hardy, place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey and Shellow Bowells, people who said 'Mustn't grumble', and Gardeners' Question Time.

 Softcover Softcover. New Book/. First Edition. First impression. Size: Octavo 8vo (standard book size). 342 pages. Multiple copies available this title. All my books are IN STOCK and shipped from our Australian address.. When journalist Miranda Kennedy arrives in New Delhi she discovers that renting an apartment as a single woman is next to impossible and finds herself cheerfully labelled as 'the unmarried Feringhee (foreigner) with the cats'. And so begins her struggle to find a place for herself in the New India, a country racing headlong into a future no one seems to be able to keep up with, least of all the extraordinary women who become her friends and unofficial guides. There is the devout Sex and the City fan who wears mini-skirts to work at a Western company yet prefers the old Bollywood style of romance; her mismatched housekeepers - a proud Brahmin widow constantly struggling to keep her smiling 'Untouchable' co-worker in her place; and the rebel who defiantly chainsmokes and drinks whisky, yet keeps her boyfriend a secret from her family. From acting as chaperone for a friend's 'interview' for an arranged marriage to reassessing her own way of life, Kennedy offers a uniquely personal insight into both their world and hers as they struggle with the challenges every woman faces: how to find the perfect partner, meet your family's expectations and yet become the woman you want to be.

Dust Jacket is in very good condition, without tears or chips or other damage. Dust Jacket un-clipped. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Seizing the barest of opportunities to explore deep into occupied Tibet, Michel Peissel accomplished what scores of Western explorers had tried and failed to do for more than 100 years: to find the source of the Mekong River, in the ice-strewn fields on the "roof of the world." Peissel's account of his 1994 expedition into Qinghai Province is so intrinsically exciting that this story cannot fail to grip the reader's imagination.... The Last Barbarians certainly has its moments; it ought to be read, but one always feels that he missed many of the chances his experience gave him to have made it far better. Quantity Available: 1.

SYNOPSIS: With our world so storm-tossed and rudderless, this might just be the book for our times. Sun-drenched Tuscany is synonymous with the ideal life. But it didn't happen by chance. Since the Etruscans, the Tuscans have treated their breathtaking countryside with sagacious respect and, in hamlets and hill towns, have built a culture of simplicity, beauty, neighborliness, good food, and a love of daily life. Ferenc Máté, a Tuscan resident for twenty years, explores this idyllic existence. He finds Tuscans brimming with creative practicality, down-home humor, and relentless optimism. Blended with their passion for work and independence, they have achieved a haven of economic stability, physical and emotional security, and a fortifying sense of belonging. From their organic gardens to their mouthwatering cuisine, from high-quality, craftsmen-made products and family-run businesses to the joys centered in human contact, Tuscans live a healthy, emotionally rich life. Máté engaging, funny, and insightful shows us how to live like Tuscans. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Italy; ISBN: . ISBN/EAN: 9780920256688.

Desert Places
Robyn Davidson,
ISBN: 0670840777
Viking, Great Britain, 1996. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. First Edition. The Rebari are a nomadic tribe in India's Thar Desert. Like nomads everywhere, the Rebari are being forced into accepting a more sedentary life. Their traditional trading and pilgrimage routes have been transected by borders and canals or blocked by atomic bomb testing sites and irrigated farm lands. But once a year, they arrive in Pushkar, partly as a pilgrimmage to bathe in the most sacred lake in India, partly to buy and sell their animals, partly to enjoy the biggest annual fair in Asia. Robyn Davidson crossed the pathless Thar Desert with the Rebari. Interwoven with the journey of the Rebari is the story of Minu, a highly spirited upperclass Indian woman, forced into an arranged marriage with the ex-king of Ghanerao, locked up in the women's quarters of the palace and subject both to the strict laws of Purdah and to psychological warfare with her in-laws. 280 pages.

French Spirits: A House, A Village and A Love Affair in Burgundy
Jeffrey Greene,
ISBN: 073227477X
Flamingo, Australia, 2002. 
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Good Condition/. . When Jeffrey Greene, a prizewinning American poet, and Mary, his wife-to-be, a molecular biologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, discover a moss-covered stone presbytery in a lovely village in the Puisaye region of Burgundy, they know they have to live there. With an unabashed joie de vivre, they begin the arduous process of procuring their slice of paradise amid the wild beauty of the French countryside — a place of gentle farmlands and dense forests, of rivers and lakes, of stunning fields bursting with the color and heady scent of wildflowers. French Spirits is the magical tale of their odyssey to become not just homeowners but Burgundians. In lush, lyrical prose, Greene recalls their experiences turning the three-hundred-year-old stone building — a "château in miniature," which the locals believe houses numerous spirits—into a habitable refuge. He brings to life their adventures in finding wonderful bargains with which to furnish their new space, including a firm mattress and some rather suspicious "antiques" bought from the back of a van. Greene offers the unexpected joys and surprises of village life, from celebrating his and Mary's simple backyard wedding to discovering summer fêtes from toiling in a verdant garden to trading insights with new neighbors. He shares the experience of surviving his mother's decision to move in and humorously introduces the locals — both human and nonhuman — who define his and Mary's new world. Woven throughout this luscious tale are the pleasures of rural France: wondrous food and wine, long-held rituals and feasts, dark superstitions and deeply rooted history. A memorable feast for the senses,French Spirits will entertain and enlighten all who succumb to its charms. 300 pages. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1.

Too Much Tuscan Sun: Confessions of a Chianti Tour Guide
Dario Castagno with Robert Rodi,
ISBN: 1863255079
Bantam Books,  2004. 
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. . Recent years have seen a virtual flood of books about Tuscany—first-person accounts about Americans trying to do American things in Italy and bumping up against a centuries-old stone wall of tradition. It’s only fair that we now hear a native Tuscan’s side of the story. Who better to provide that view than Dario Castagno, a British-born, Tuscan-raised tour guide who has spent more than a decade leading Americans into the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti region. In this lively, candid memoir, Dario looks at the Americans who have stormed through his life and his homeland. Some tested his sanity, others became lifelong friends. With wry humor and affection, Dario recalls some of his more remarkable clients—the delightful, the vain, the silly, the ignorant, the ambitious, the amorous, the condescending, the lovely, and the outright crazy. He also shares an account of his own life and times—his transformation from bohemian layabout to thriving tour guide—and offers an enchanting introduction to the charms of Tuscany over the course of a year. Through his company, Chianti Rooster Tours, Dario Castagno guides small groups of visitors to his favorite spots in the Chianti region of Italy. He belongs to Siena’s Caterpillar contrada, which in 2003 won the Palio—the wildly popular bareback horse race that takes place in Siena each summer. 268 pages. Tanning to pages.
