This profound discovery of a beautiful family and a simple way of life takes place amidst the malfeasance and fear of the financial crisis of 2008 and a period of challenging midlife transition. The author would learn from his Dalmatian kin what matters -- family, love, and community -- and how to deal with adversity. The author is a noted travel writer whose work has been praised by the New York Times, Gourmet, and the Wine Advocate.
