In 1872, Amelia Edwards, a popular English novelist, embarked on an intrepid journey through the Dolomites. More than a century later, inspired by Edwards' account of her travels, Alan and Susan Boyle retraced her steps.
Spirits of the Dolomites explores past and present, change and continuity. The book includes excerpts from Edwards' original narrative juxtaposed against the authors' modern-day encounters with the descendants of people Edwards met among these majestic peaks, and compares Edwards' unpublished watercolours with Stunning recent photographs of the areas depicted.
Emphasising the connections between Nature and humanity, this book is a beautifully illustrated, engaging portrayal of one of the world's most spectacular natural phenomena.
