Praise for "Hidden Tuscany

""Every landscape hides a story, and it is the travel writer's task to find it. John Keahey reveals a Tuscany starkly different from Merchant Ivory period films, a Tuscany of marble quarries and sulfur springs, medieval towns and Etruscan necropolises, poisonous marshes and prehistoric archipelagos, and cattle country as wild and wooly as any in the American West. Shaped by time and tide, scarred by war and haunted by exile, this is a Tuscany of stark contrasts. Dazzling sunflowers clash with somber cypresses, while local seafood evokes the ghost of the drowned poet Percy Shelley. Keahey wrote this book 'to engender a spirit of discovery' in readers. He succeeds spectacularly. His prose is as chiseled and polished as the finest Carrara." --Anthony Di Renzo, author of "Bitter Greens" and "Trinacria: A Tale of Bourbon Sicily

""If you've never explored the western part of Tuscany--and few people have--John Keahey's "Hidden Tuscany" will make you want to run for the next flight. From the marble shops of Pietrasanta to the ruins of the Sant'Anna di Stazzema massacre to the remote villages in the Maremma, Keahey takes us on a cultural, historical and mouth-watering gastronomical journey through one of the most fascinating regions in all of Italy. Part personal journal and part guide, this is a book to treasure--and to take along when you make that trip." --Paul Salsini, award-winning author of the "The Cielo

""Better than a guide book, "Hidden Tuscany" offers us close-ups of the cities and villages of western Tuscany and puts us in touch with the people who live there." --Robert Hellenga, author of "The Sixteen Pleasures "and "Fall of the Sparrow

""A detailed and enthusiastic introduction to Tuscany's coastal areas, this book will come as an intriguing surprise to many who thought they knew the region well." --Mary Taylor Simeti, author of "On Persephone"'"s Island"

Praise for "Hidden Tuscany
""Keahey fully understands the art of taking the road less traveled--a solid addition to his body of work." --"Kirkus Reviews
""Travel writer Keahey delivers another insightful look at the wonders of Italy...Keahey succeeds completely at producing a book that lovingly describes the beauty of the region at the same time that it embodies what Keahey feels is the best 'guide to being a traveler: pick a direction, carry a map so you know how to get back to your resting place each evening, and set out each morning with no agenda.'" --"Publishers Weekly

""Even an area as over-examined (and over-touristed) as Tuscany can yield unexpected treasures and insights. These are excavated in a loving tribute that concentrates, primarily, on the less known western area of this iconic region....One has to wonder if Alitalia had a hand in funding this book, as it will surely encourage travelers who'd written off Tuscan as 'too touristy' to give it another try." --"Frommer's"
