baking French breads

I have Bernard Clayton's other bread book, 'New Complete Book of Breads' (which is excellent). The recipes in 'Breads of France' seem clear and straightforward, no unusual ingredients or techniques. I enjoyed reading Mr. Clayton's personal comments about the various areas of France where the different breads he included originated. Rather than using this book as a cookbook, I have enjoyed it more as a history and commentary on French breads.

Other books I would recommend for learning to make authentic French breads are 'Artisan Baking Across America,' by Maggie Glezer; and Jeffrey Hamelman's book of techniques and recipes simply titled 'Bread.'
