In 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.

Review quote

'Whether vibrating with the golden light of sunset or blanketed by the fog of a chilly night, Brukoff's photographs bring the viewer in touch with the land. He is an apt companion for Gage's return - like Odysseus' - to the rocky hills of Greece' San Diego Union - Tribune ' Brukoff's images resonate more deeply with the viewer: they practically radiate peace.'
