Summary "Why is it that the inhabitants of Sardinia are so much more likely to reach the age of 100 than any other people on the earth? Journalist Ben Hills travelled with photographer Mayu Kanamori around this Island of the Ancients, meeting up with a cast of colourful centenarians while exploring Sardinia’s landscape, lifestyle and culture. This engaging read captures what they found on their travels."--From the publisher
