"Love and understand the Italians, for the people are more marvelous than the land."
With such inspiration does James Shaw take off on a summer of agritourism, picking olives on organic family farms in Tuscany, living with Italians, and eating at their tables. The result is a splendid and heart-warming set of reflections on life, food, family, and a people whose "national pastime ... is hospitality." Shaw attempts the basic question of why and how the Italians manage to live as they do; his journey will enchant you, and the answer he reaches might be a surprise.
