An exquisite parade of literary excerpts and folklore images make up this tale of Sardinia, of its history and traditions.
A brightly-coloured collection of traditional Sardinian costumes depicted in 19th-century paintings and early 20th-century photographs, and a magnificent series of jewels that adorned the island beauties. These images are accompanied by Grazia Deledda’s earliest stories – never published again after 1913 – and by astonished accounts written by the foreign travellers who wandered the mountains and valleys of Sardinia in the last century.
