Gordon Bitney brings us another installment of life in Provence, among the vineyards and orchards, the outdoor marches and the ruins from Roman times and the Middle Ages scattered across the countryside. Written in an intimate and colourful style, this book reflects the stunning landscapes which inspired Cezanne, Picasso and van Gogh to create masterpieces. This personal journey examines what makes it such a special place, as Bitney cycles village to village and finds himself enmeshed in the lives of the locals, be it harvesting grapes or hunting for truffles. Taking the tourism out of travel and making a far corner of the world his own, Bitney's love of the region and its people resounds through these pages.
