All about the Netherlands

When Charlotte Dematons moved to the Netherlands, she barely knew the country. But she arrived, explored the country and got to know and love the landscape, culture, traditions, and the Dutch. In this book, she tells us about her arrival and how she got to know the Dutch culture and its traditions. Traditions that we Netherlanders take for granted, but as for their origins or who invented them, we probably don't really know. For example, take the well-known children's song 'Berend Botje'. He set off on a journey to South Laren and didn't return. You probably didn't know that the background to this song is that Berend Botje was a shipowner, who purposely allowed unseaworthy ships to go to sea, in order to collect the insurance premium when the ship sunk without trace! Artist Dematons has also painted on the subject of our eating habits, traditions, architecture, and much more. Author Jesse Goossens has dived into the Netherlands' past and filled this book with bizarre facts and pearls of wisdom about the Netherlands.
