It takes great writing skill to make a setting/place feel real and dynamic, so that it "comes alive" for the reader.
This book provides tons of information on how to incorporate the setting into the story, so that it becomes an integral part of the characters' experience.
This is a reference guide that any writer can turn to again and again, for various writing projects, and as the need arises.
A handy resource!
