Best historical book on Southern France on the market.
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 23 years ago
Having read all the Peter Mayle books,I was looking for something different regarding the South of France.This gem,written by a well travelled former Member of Congress and his wife,more than met my hopes.I would no more consider another visit to Southern France without this very readable reference for my evening reading than I would think of going down a river in a canoe without a paddle.The book is an absolute delight.
Used it in South of France and loved it

I took this with me to Gascogne and Langedoc and even the French Guide loved it. It gives the historical background of the areas and minimum of stuff like where to stay or eat (which is unnecessary when you're with a group). Even used it when on my own in Carcassone and Toulouse. Bonus: printed on lightweight paper. Why do so many guidebooks weigh a ton?
