Wandering in Greece:
Athens, Islands and Antiquities

Stone, marble, mountain, sea and sky framed by endless blue—these are the elemental foundations of Greece, just as Greece is the elemental foundation of Western Civilization. For thousands of years Greece and its culture, philosophy, politics and spirit has inspired and influenced the lives of generations.
In Wandering in Greece, this talented and inquisitive group of writers has captured some of the joy, warmth, grace and wisdom of Greece and its people. These stories, poems and images will remind a whole new group of travelers that a visit is a must, and those who have already ventured in Greece that they have to return. 
—Ambassador Eleni Kounalakis, ret.
Lt. Governor of California

“Geography is destiny,” it is often said, and so to follow the sinuous paths through Greece is to discover not just mountains, seas, islands, rocks and plains, but the civilization they inevitably gave rise to. Like travelers throughout the centuries, Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggar, accompanied by a peripatetic band of writers, return to Greece to discover its ancient truths as well as its modern ones—gods and demi-gods, nature and science, heroes and refugees, the fleeting and the eternal—and perhaps a map revealing pathways through our own precarious times.
