"For holidays, and for more permanen t residence, the popularity of the Canary Islands has grown dramatically over the last few years. What visitors and residents both need is a bookwhichprovides full information about the places best worth visiting and which a t the same time g'ves significance to that information by placing it in the context of the Islands' history- To have produced just such a book is the considerable achievement of John and Anne Mason.

The early chapters discuss Food and Wine (for both of which there is much good to be said). and the often exotic Flora and Fauna. Subsequent sections deal with individual areas of the Islands: the Grand Canary, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura,Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and El Hierro. Finally, a Glossary gives the English meaningsof words and phrases which, often interesting and important in themselves, too often remain enigmatic to most visitors to the Canaries." - from the dj.
