'Robin's zest to explore all sorts of strange places and write books about them has now taken him to Albania - this is a place I have always wanted to go to' --Sir Ranulph Fiennes
'Albania remains one of the most mysterious, beguiling countries in Europe. Robin and Louella Hanbury-Tenison have travelled through it in a way I can only envy. Top to bottom on horseback, a journey on which they had the time to look behind the stereotypes of the country and see the dramatic beauty and unique traditions that lie beneath.' --Michael Palin
'His best book to date...of the sort that would win the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award if it were still going. It's got just the right balance of travelogue and digression. The Sunday Times named Hanbury-Tenison 'the greatest explorer of the past 20 years' and one of the thousand 'Makers of the 20th Century'. He deserves to be much better known as an author and perhaps with the publication of Land of Eagles this slight injustice is about to be put right.' --Nick Smith, Bookdealer
