From the Back Cover:

First published in 1915, Old Calabria is one of the most comprehensive and exciting accounts of adventure travel in this century. Captivated by the cheerfully pagan quality of the mezzogiorno, as he understood it, Douglas plunged into Calabria, the southernmost and most backward part of Italy (a province that was still largely devoid of any form of modern amenity). He endured extremes of climate, scaled mountains, rode in rickety carriages driven by villainous coachmen, and traversed remote stretches of country where murderous groups of banditti were known to roam.

About the Author:

Norman Douglas (1868-1952) was born in Austria and educated in England, Germany and France. Much of his life was spent in exile in Italy and the south of France. He is the author of several books, including Siren LandFountains in the Sand, and Old Calabria. Publication of his most famous novel, South Wind, established his reputation as one of the foremost writers of his generation. Though his life was surrounded by controversy, Douglas’s prose reflected an elegance and beauty acclaimed by critics. His novels and travel books are now widely regarded as classics.
