“Scholarly research, acutely lived personal experiences, and the author’s sensitive and intelligent observation make the book continuously delightful and fascinating. She evokes the magnificent scenery and austere granite villages. She illustrates the traditional pastoral herds’ economy with accounts of her visits to shepherds’ settlements little changed since proto-historic times. A study of banditry and the vendetta system is completed with a description of her personal encounters with people and families still involved.”
