KIRKUS REVIEW

The region of the Western Mediterranean is as heterogeneous as it is interesting. In this text, the author includes autobiographical sketches describing the life of children from ten regions--Tunisia, Malta, Sicily, Italy, France, Algeria, Morocco, Spain, Portugal, and Gibraltar. Stressing the different attitudes, customs, and temperaments of these places through the narratives of children, he dramatizes the nature of one of the most ancient and culturally rich parts of the world. Intimate and informal, this book by the author of many books on Africa is a companion to his Young People of the Eastern Mediterranean.
