AN expat author has struck at the heart of Almeria province and its many secrets in a new book.

Kevin Borman’s Flamingos in the desert – Exploring Almeria represents four years of exploration and comes with maps and a link to an extensive online photo gallery.

From flamingos to earthquakes, iron mines to goats, wildfires to high-speed trains and white villages to the sets of cinematic history, the area is diverse to say the least.

“I’ve been intrigued by this area since first coming here nearly nine years ago,” said Kevin, a former geography teacher from Sheffield.

“The more I’ve explored – physically and by talking to lots of people – the more I wanted to produce a book that would give English-speakers an insight into what really makes this little-known pocket of Andalucia tick.”

Kevin has been exploring Almeria since purchasing a house there with his wife Troy Roberts in 2005.

Flamingos in the desert – Exploring Almeria is available from Amazon, feedaread.com and also from the author for just €10. Email: [email protected]
