We are grateful for this extract from correspondence (with the author) with two American hikers who used the book (April 2008):
Thank you so much for both your book and your advise. We spent 12 days in Sicily and LOVED it. In fact we wished we had at least 2 more weeks since we missed lots of places we would like to have seen. Spent one day in Palermo which was fine for a city. Then 2 nights in Erice. We really liked Erice but can imagine that when there are lots of tourists (there we practically none; in fact the hotel we stayed in only had one other family) it could be a bit much. We did the Zingaro hike from there and it was fabulous. Of course the weather was perfect and the wild flowers were in full bloom. Your directions were excellent. ...Anyway, not including the Erice town walk in your book we managed 3 hikes and without your book never would have found them! So we are very much in your debt and very appreciative of the book.
