Written in a chatty, conversational tone, Old Calabria will be of interest to armchair travelers and to anyone who enjoys stories of everyday adventure.
British writer NORMAN DOUGLAS (1868-1952) wrote a number of books,...

Don’t you love the way Italians talk? Those long vowels, those rolling “r’s,” that lyrical cadence. It just sounds so…sexy, right? Wouldn’t you like to have that music coming from your own voice? You can. It just takes a little practice. OK, maybe more than a little—so let’s get started!
