Über diesen Titel
In the winter of 1897, Victorian writer George Gissing made a well-chronicled journey throughout southern Italy. The result was a book, By the Ionian Sea, which was published in 1901 and has since become a classic in travel literature.A hundred years later, award-winning newspaper journalist John Keahey sets off to retrace Gissing's footsteps. His goal is to compare and contrast the two Italys, seeing first-hand all the changes that have occurred over the past century. From train rides through the lush countryside to the crisp mountain air of Cantanzaro, Keahey paints a beautiful and compelling picture of one of the most popular parts of the country.A Sweet and Glorious Land is not only a wonderful travelogue but also an intriguing history of Italy and its people.About the Author:
JOHN KEAHEY is a veteran newspaper journalist who, for the past ten years, has been a news editor and reporter for The Salt Lake Tribune. He has history and marketing degrees from the University of Utah and spends as much time as possible in Italy. He lives in Salt Lake City with book-designer Connie Disney.
