The discovery of France

Robb, Graham, 1958-2008
Books, Manuscripts
The notion of 'the French' as one nation is relatively recent and - historically speaking - quite misleading. In order to discover the 'real' past of France, it's not only necessary to go back in time, but also to go at a slower pace than modern life generally allows. This book is the result of 14,000 miles covered by bicycle.
