Cross-Channel France John Ruler
on 26 October 2011
This book contains long lists of things to do in Nord-Pas de Calais and, if this is what you want from a guide, then this book is for you. There is also quite a lot of general history.
However, the maps are limited and do not break the the region down into areas, so I could not link the descriptions and chapters to towns and villages. There is also little description of places - where to wander, where is quiet, where you will enjoy a peaceful stroll and perhaps sample the French way of life.
The book is a guide for rushing across the channel, doing strenuous activities and rushing back again.
