The Western coast of Turkey has captivated travellers for centuries. With its dramatic mountains and idyllic bays and promontories scattered with ancient ruins, it is not only one of the most beautiful parts of the country, but is also of great historical interest. Resting on two continents, Turkey reflects and absorbs the cultures of both East and West and nowhere is this more evident than along its Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. This is a land immersed in history and mythology: it is where Anthony met Cleopatra, where Heroduotus, the 'father' of history, was born and where legendary battles were fought - from Alexander the Great to Gallipoli. The Western Shores of Turkey is the distillation of a succession of journeys that John Freely made along this coast - an odyssey spanning a quarter of a century. By bus, car and caique, on foot and post boat, from Istanbul to Antakya (Antioch) on the Syrian border, he discovered the charm of modern Turkey and the wonders of its past. The result is both an informative guide and a remarkable travelogue for all who follow in his footsteps.
