Old Calabria

Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., Apr 1, 2007 - History - 340 pages
At the time when southern Italy was an isolated and underdeveloped region, Douglas wrote this 1915 travel guide to bring the beauty that he found in Calabria to the reading public. Inspired by the landscape, unique cultural traditions, and proximity to history, he found even traveling on long mule trails to be an enjoyable part of the journey rather than an inconvenience. 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, including South Wind (1917).

About the author (2007)

Author Norman Douglas was born in Austria on December 8, 1868 and was educated in England, Germany, and France. In 1893, he joined the British Foreign Office and worked as a diplomat in Russia and Italy. He left the service in 1896 apparently as the result of an indiscreet love affair. He wrote numerous travel books and his only popular success was the novel South Wind, published in 1917. He died in 1952.
