Tales from a Greek Island

Often surprising, sometimes bizarre, never dull.  Roger Jinkinson takes us far off the tourist-beaten track to explore life - and death - in a small village on a remote Greek island.  Meet the people he has come to know over 25 years - at once traditional and modern, hard-bitten and generous, stoic and resourceful.  Learn how they fish, keep bees, hunt goats, make music.  Read about the man who tried to ransom a floating crane, about the mule that outwitted the German army and the death of a giant.  Read and you will feel the very pulse of a community as it fights to maintain its unique and vibrant culture.
