About our cover...

For a long time the 24,000 islands that comprise the Stockholm archipelago served as a mighty bulwark in the defense of the capital city. Today the archipelago's thousands of islands, harbors, and beaches offer fine swimming, sailing, and some historical sights. A summer idyll for natives and visitors alike, this unspoiled area is maintained as part of Sweden's heritage. Red-painted summer houses dot the region and flowers grow in abundance. Island-hopping is easy, and many pleasures await the visitor as Alexander Farnsworth's article reveals (p.58ff).
