Description


A picture story for adults, a photo essay, a guide of sorts, exploring the fascinating Italian island of Sardinia, population 1.6 million, the second largest in the Mediterranean after Sicily. Sardinia is full of surprises, offering much more than gorgeous beaches embracing turquoise waters as in the popular La Maddalena Archipelago and Stintino or even the beaches of Alghero, and Cagliari the capital, stretching for miles. Cagliari and Alghero as well as Olbia, Sassari and Nuoro all have fascinating monuments and museums to check out too not to mention a lot of street art especially in the township of Orgosolo, barely half an hour's drive from Nuoro. What's more surprising still are the numerous archaeological sites not only Roman such as Nora close to Cagliari but those of Nuragic Civilisation dated 1800 BC to 3rd-century BC. Landscapes of Sardinia with mountains soaring to 1,800 metres, awesome cloud formations fleeting across big skies, oak forests, olive groves and vineyards carpeting the sparsely populated countryside, flocks of sheep roaming pastures are truly scenic and inspiring. Via some 140 photos and 7,000 words the book aims to describe the best of Sardinia in one racy read revealing the islands untamed beauty, bucolic countryside and fascinating history and traditions.
