Review quote

"Full of fascinating details in writing, graphics and photos, Iceland delves deeply into the country in a format that often resists depth. Evans knows the country, and it shows. But he also organizes the essential information in an easy-to-use way. It's the combination of depth and breadth that sets this guidebook apart from many others. Evans takes his subject seriously and invites the reader in to the experience of Iceland with wit and authority."Judges' comments - Society of American Travel Writers Foundation, 2008 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Silver Award for Best Guidebook
