The Third book from Chris Stewart - The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society  continues his adventures and experiences in and around his Spanish home. Click the books for detailed reviews.

Driving over Lemons

"A wonderful book – funny, affectionate, no hint of patronage, a true portrait of place, and people, reaching deep beneath the skin. Tuck it into your holiday luggage and dream."
Elizabeth Luard, Daily Mail.

A Parrot In The Pepper Tree

"It is everything that made the first book so hugely successful – endearing, heart-warming, self-deprecating, sometimes surreal." William Leith, Evening Standard

The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society

"Essential reading for anyone who wants to know how the good life goes on.

Chris Stewart is possibly the only travel writer who is genuinely ‘funnier than Bill Bryson’."

Jim Blackburn, Traveller


Other Authors:

 'South from Granada' is Gerald Brennan's account of his experiences in the Alpujarras in the 1920's. 'Duende' follows Jason Webster's search for duende, the elusive  intense emotional state which is intrinsic to Flamenco. His adventures include a love affair and involvement with a gypsy flamenco troupe. His second book 'Andalus' follows his journey around southern Spain looking for traces of Moorish influence in Spanish life. The Factory of Light is a humorous account of Michael Jacobs immersion in a village in an Andalusian olive growing community.

For those wishing to explore the region on foot we recommend 'Alpujarras Tour and Trail Map' - 34 walks with full GPS waypoint lists and information about the region and photos of the beautiful landscape or 'Landscapes of Andalucia and the Costa Del Sol' - A walking guide which includes topographical walking maps, a fold out touring map and many short walks and picnic suggestions.
