the tourist-beaten track to explore life — and death — in a small village on a
remote Greek Island. Meet the people he has come to know over 25 years — at
once traditional and modern, hard-bitten and generous, stoic and resourceful.
Learn how they fish, keep bees, hunt goats, make music. Read about the man
who tried to ransom a floating crane, about the mule that outwitted the
German army and the death of a giant. Read and you will feel the very pulse
of a community as it fights to maintain its unique and vibrant culture.
