    Been out of circulation a bit recently, but so lovely to come back and see another great post. Must say, if I hadn’t become a teacher…a travel writer would have been it! Wow! 😀

    Thirza Vallois, both historian and travel writer, avoids that “just passing through” feeling found often in other travel writing. I always bring to Paris one volume of her three volume Around and About Paris, so that each trip I can again feel the thrill of learning a bit more about how every part of Paris is a colorful piece of an interconnected and ongoing historical story, and discover new and exciting historical tidbits about even familiar streets. In her new book Aveyron – A Bridge to French Arcadia , this same talent for storytelling, along with her childlike joy of discovery, encyclopedic knowledge of history, and her very real personal relationships with its people, lead us by the hand through the geography, the history, and the individuals populating this little known part of France – a hilly and often spectacularly beautiful rural area that is a fascinating mix of the ancient and the modern.
