An entertaining series of anecdotes about life in the Alpujarras. Easy reading. ( )

The third part of the Chris Stewart's triology of his life in Spain. Love his travel books on Spain - a lovely personal account of his life there.

Back Cover Blurb:
The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society finds Chris and his family still living on their farm, El Valero - but life there never stands still. You will find yourself laughing out loud as Chris is instructed by his daughter on local teenage mores; bluffs his way as an art history guide to millionaire Bostonians; is rescued off a snowy peak by the Guardia Civil; and joins an Almond Blossom Appreciation Society. You'll cringe as he tries his hand at office work in an immigrants' advice centre in Granada. And you'll never see olive oil in quite the same way again.... ( )

The third installment chronicling Stewart's life in a remote Andalucían villiage is as wonderful as the first.
