In TRAVELER'S TALES FRANCE, we've collected useful and memorable stories to produce the kind of sampler we've always wanted to red before setting out. These stories wil showyou a spectrum of experiences to be had or avoided in France. The authors come from many walks of life: some are teachers, some are writers, some are adventurers, all are wanderers with a tale to tell. Their stories will help you to deepen and enrich your experience of France.
The book is organised into five parts. In the first, we've chosen stories that reflict the ephemeral yet pervasive essence of a country. Part II (Some Things To Do) contains stories about places and activities that others have found worthwhile. In Part III (Going Your Own Way), we've chosen stories by people who have made a special connection between their lives and interests and the people and places they visited. Part IV (In The Shadows) shows some of the struggles and challenges facing a country and Part V (The Last Word), is just that, something of a grace note or harmonic to remind you of the book as a whole.
