  • Les Géants du Causse Méjean (French Edition) by Nelly Costecalde

    By Nelly Costecalde

    J’ai mes racines paternelles sur le causse Méjean. Racines tenaces, accrochées aux cailloux. J’aime par-dessus tout séjourner au Veygalier, au nord d’un chaos rocheux nommé Nîmes-le-Vieux parce qu’il ressemble à une ville en ruines. J’y prends gîte chez une famille de quatre générations d’agriculteurs éleveurs aubergistes, entourés de leurs six cents brebis et d’innombrables rochers.
    Ces rochers sont devenus mes amis. Je les visite, je vais leur souhaiter le bonjour et le bonsoir, je les nomme, je leur parle. Eux aussi me parlent. Même, ils m’enseignent je ne sais quelle sagesse ancestrale qui m’est nécessaire.
    À travers les pics que j’en ai faits, en photos et en mots, je vous présente ces grands compagnons. Mais surtout, allez les voir et faire vous-mêmes connaissance. Peut-être leur trouverez-vous d’autres physionomies ; peut-être échangerez-vous d’autres dialogues avec eux ?
