The Eagle's Eye,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sicily: Nature, Culture and Traditions (Italy from Above) (Hardcover)
What a great book. For those who know Sicily well, this will be a wonderful way of refreshing memories and perspectives of this beautiful island. Over 200 fine colour photographs taken from the air cover every aspect of Sicily. The text is spare but readily positions the photographs into the context of their settings. Consequently the book is divided up into sensible sections covering Archaeology, Nature, Volcanoes, Cities and the smaller islands. The colours are stunning and there is a complete index to look out favourite places.
These are the views of Sicily that you cannot see for yourself and which do not appear on postcards. Its value as a treasury of Sicilian land and life is therefore greatly to be appreciated. I can heartily recommend this book both to anyone familiar with the island and, even more, to anyone planning a visit there.
