From Baird Maritime:
Another for the busman’s holiday brigade. Your reviewer is well aware that many of his readers own or charter pleasure boats in which they like to explore and enjoy the world’s most interesting and attractive parts.
This book describes just such an exceptionally interesting and attractive part of the world. Southern France between the wonderful old cities of Marseille and Toulouse.
The area is crossed by a remarkable series of waterways both man-made and natural. It is enhanced by numerous historic and fascinating towns and charming villages. The climate is very attractive, too, as are the local wines and food.
This small but very stylishly produced book describes the area very enticingly. Your reviewer, who has explored parts of the area, was transported back there very effectively.
