Sicily: Three Thousand Years of Human History

Sicily: Three Thousand Years of Human History - Sandra Benjamin This is a wonderful broad-brushed synopsis of everything that's happened on the isle of Sicily since the first Greek colonists stepped ashore. Sandra Benjamin has a personable narrative style, and an infectious love of the subject, which make this book a pleasure to read. I read this before travelling to Sicily, and it served very well in providing background information to help me better appreciate the sights. One star off for the maps, which are too few, or which don't feature the places she describes in the text.
