The Best Books on The Azores From Discovery to 2019

Are you looking for books written by Azorean authors or perhaps about the fascinating history, life and culture of the Azores region and its people? Then you have come to the right place! I found out the hard way that alot of information I was interested in finding out about the Azores was hard to find or not categorized properly which prevented me (and I am assuming many other people) from finding some of their unique literature from the past to present. I have made up a list of various books available online for sale on the topic of the Azores from some of the regions most talented writers that dates back over 200 years, which gives various accounts and details about the life and culture of the various islands and its people.
