"Chalosse is a beautiful land, a quiet land, a teritory of soft hills and horizon lines. It borders and marks the end - in a colorful manner - of the Landes country, its vast areas of pine trees, its long beaches of white sand, the accurate lights of its winter mornings, the delicate austerity of its landscapes."
This books is part of the Territoires (Territories) collection by this publisher:

This curve that must be climbed up, this furrow of a forgotten first time, the strength of the landscape outside that capsizes the doubt inside. Capsizes, submerges, pacifies..."NB : For those of you who read French, the...
