July 2010 Travel Book of the Month.


Banks, Cuckoo Clocks, Cheese and Chocolate just about sums up most people’s knowledge of Switzerland, but read Diccon Bewes' entertaining view of the country and you’ll know a whole lot more. He takes readers on a tour of Switzerland and we learn about its history, its people and its place at the heart of Europe. Diccon Bewes has the Bryson touch, informing and entertaining readers with his observations, considerable knowledge and love for this little known country.
