Old Calabria, $15.95, Norman Douglas

Captivated by the cheerfully pagan quality of the mezzo-giorno, [Norman] Douglas plunged into Calabria, the southernmost and most backward part of Italy. . . .He endured extremes of climate, scaled mountains, rode in rickety carriages driven by villainous coachmen, and traversed remote stretches of country where murderous groups of banditti were known to roam. As Jon Manchip White points out in his informative introduction, it now "makes good reading, but it must have constituted a protracted and frightening ordeal--frightening, that is, to anyone except someone like Douglas, possessed of a more than normal share of guts and fortitude".
