"The Netherlands is a place often equated with blonde-haired, blue-eyed people and wooden shoes; however, it is much more than that. The Netherlands is a prosperous country that has a vibrant history and a unique culture. This book explores the Netherlands of the past and well as the present, and what it is like to live there today." -- Publisher's website.
