Greece by Nicholas Gage
Book DescriptionIn the stark light of the Greek sun, colours become so pure and clear that they are almost audible. Greece is a legendary destinaation, and anyone who has once fallen under its spell dreams of returning again and again. Here is the marvellous record of an enchanting land. Interest in Greece will be at an all time high as the Olympics returns to Greece in summer 2004. Brukoff's briliant colour images and Gage's evocative words delineate the heart of Greece. Included are the great classical ruins, Byzantine monasteries, colourful fishing villages, and the ubiquitous cats - the vivid details that each traveller takes home as a memory. Gage's insightful essays on the turbulent history of Greece, its myths and beliefs, life in the villages and the age old wisdom and spirit of the Greek people, are a passionate tribute to an extraordinary country.

In 1948, in a Greek mountain village, Eleni Gatzoyiannis was arrested, tortured and shot. She was one of the 158,000 victims of the Greek Civil War. Her crime had been to help her children escape from the Communist guerrillas who occupied their village. Her son, Nicholas Gage, was then eight years old.
