Wandering in Andalusia
is the latest in a series of travel anthologies published by Wanderland Writers. This volume includes a rich mix of stories by writers who searched for and encountered the soul of southern Spain. Along the way, they discovered, and wrote about, a country ripe with contradiction and a place “where both duende and alegria co-exist.”
