More Tales from a Greek Island

For more than thirty years Roger Jinkinson has visited and lived on the small Greek island of Karpathos.  In this, his second book of tales from the island, he tells how he first arrived by boat, his children mistaken for luggage, and how he found himself immersed in a unique and vibrant culture.  This island's people are tough, stubborn and highly individualistic.  Read about the many and varied ways of fish and fishing, of the festivals and ceremonies that mark the year, of the intrigues and jealousies of cafe owners, of the unique wildlife of the island, of the once thriving villages deserted as their inhabitants left for cities over-seas, and of the ambivalent feelings of the children of emigrants towards their ancestral homeland.
