Surprisingly, there has been no specific guidebook to this area. With East of Malaga, award-winning author David Baird -- a resident for 30 years -- fills the gap splendidly. -- The Argus, Brighton
East of Malaga is full of useful information and thoughtful advice. It contains everything you need to know about fiestas, sights, wine and food, places to stay and much more. -- The Mail on Sunday
Like all good travel writers, Baird has an eye for the odd and eccentric. On your way, you'll discover the village with its own currency, the hell-raising Morris dancers called Verdiales, the hiding place of the region's last bandit and a 10th century Moorish minaret now leaning more than the tower at Pisa. -- Huddersfield Daily Examiner
This is a little gem of a book. And perhaps the perfect eye-opener for jaded travellers who say 'Spain? It's all been spoiled, hasn't it?' -- Northern Echo, Darlington
