I purchased this book on my trip to Nisyros in
August in 2002 at one of the stores there for 8 Euro. In a couple of nights
I read through it from cover to cover.
The history section is entitled: "Turning Points in the History of the Island." It gives a sentence or two on each significant event that the author identifies. It goes on for seven pages with pictures mixed in. Earthquakes are also recorded as well as political and historical events.
Also covered are many other topics regarding the
Island. Overall the book educated me and gave me much insight into my
heritage. I recommend it to all who want to know Nisyros better from a
Greek and historical perspective.
