From Publishers Weekly:

A classic in England since the early 1950s, White's ( West of the Rhone ) gracefully written guide to the regions surrounding the Dordogne, Lot and Tarn rivers in Southwestern France is now marvelously complemented by Busselle's ( The Wine Lover's Guide to France ) color photographs. White, the most pleasant armchair traveling companion a reader could hope for, holds forth on landscape, history, food, art and architecture, national and regional character, geographical phenomena, wildlife, the nature of the picturesque, etc. Her intelligence, wit and curiosity bring the countryside to life; her opinions are strong without being didactic and her taste is near impeccable. Busselle updates information that has changed in the past 30-odd years with unobtrusive notes. His textually germane photos for this lovely book (small enough to travel with, but only just) are breathtaking. Carefully composed, perfectly lit shots depict castles, cathedrals, small villages, mountain gorges, bustling marketplaces, lonely cottages, springtime pastures--and multiple views of the three rivers.

From Library Journal:

White wrote her classic 1952 travelog on southwestern France by centering on three rivers?the Dordogne, the Lot, and the Tarn?whose geological origins, landscapes, and civilizations she describes. Busselle has followed in her footsteps and provided beautiful photographs documenting the region. He notes how well the White work holds up today and how little has changed in the sparsely populated, rarely traveled area. Busselle adds a chapter to outline tours that allow one to explore the area in a couple of weeks and gives some practical travel advice with current addresses of tourism offices. Nicely laid out and well indexed, this book is entertaining for the armchair traveler and helpful for the tourist.?Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Services, Wondervu, Col.
