really liked it

The great poet's affectionate take on the culture and people of southwestern France. What characters! His portraits of the rustic French are nonpareil, as is his evocation of the landscape. This is a superb "travel" book and, of course, an elegy for a way of life too rapidly disappearing. A must-read for anyone visiting rural France.
