Product description

Product Description

Ahh, Provence… that magical place in the south of France. It fills our minds with images of lazy, sunny days sitting in the central square of a quaint village, just drinking in the ambience.

While that’s all very pleasant, you can add an extra layer of enjoyment to your Provençal experience by discovering the stories and histories that shaped this area and its people.

Here are just a few of the tales that you’ll discover in this book:
- Why do those noisy cicadas sing so loudly?
- How did Martha deal with the dreadful local dragon?
- What did Nostradamus predict in Provence?
- In the Provençal Christmas story, why is Bethlehem in France?
- How did Buffalo Bill have a lasting effect on the region?
And much more…

About the Author

Margo Lestz is American by birth but now divides her time between London, England and Nice, France (with a few other places thrown in for good measure). She enjoys the fact that life in a foreign country is never dull and every day is a new learning experience. She describes herself as a perpetual student and is always taking some kind of course or researching a moment in history that has caught her fancy. She's curious by nature and always wondering who, what, why, when, where, and how. Margo shares her adventures (and her questions) with Jeff, her husband of many years. She enjoys travel, history, observing cultures and traditions - and then writing about them, of course.
