The Discovery of France, Paperback Book

The Discovery of France Paperback



Illuminating, engrossing and full of surprises, The Discovery of France is a literary exploration of a country few will recognize; from maps and migration to magic, language and landscape, it's a book that reveals the `real' past of France to tell the whole story - and history - of this remarkable nation. `With gloriously apposite facts and an abundance of quirky anecdotes and thumbnail sketches of people, places and customs, Robb, on brilliant form, takes us on a stunning journey through the historical landscape of France' Independent `Certain books strain the patience of those close to you.

How many times can you demand: "Look at this! Can you imagine? Did you know that?" without actually handing over the volume?

This is such a book' Mail on Sunday `An extraordinary journey of discovery that will delight even the most indolent armchair traveller' Daily Telegraph
