about this item

Over 12 million visitors travel to the Canary Islands every year, to see its famous black and white sand beaches and enjoy attractions like Carnival. Traditional tour guides give straightforward advice on what to do and where to go, but in this remarkable cultural history, celebrated journalist and Canary Islands native Juan Cruz Ruiz offers something much more, for travelers and interested readers looking for a more intimate exploration of this rich archipelago.Reading The Canary Islands is like traveling with a personal tour guide, one who will tell you in exquisite language about the original inhabitants of the Canaries, the history of the islands (including their conquest by Spain), and what life was like for residents of the Canaries before tourism. Ruiz explores the geography of the Canaries, the food, the local art. He introduces the reader to live Canario people and tells their life stories.The Canary Islands is a poetic, joyful look at the islands and the islanders, as well as a unique guide to unusual Canary Islands destinations, can't-miss food and wine, and the history, mythology, and ecology of this cherished destination.
