Product Description

Review

An extraordinary book of adventure and encounter, fantasy and learning, observation and experience (Sunday Times)

From the Mani he has brought back riches. How can one do justice to the fascination and poetry of this book, its generosity and its learning - its love? (Spectator)

He supercharges his narrative with a combination of tenderness and high spirits appropriate to his past achievements as a guerrilla leader in Crete (Daily Telegraph)

Mani and Roumeli: two of the best travel books of the century (Financial Times)

John Murray is doing the decent thing and reissuing all of Leigh Fermor's main books ... But what else would you expect from a publisher whose commitment to geography is such that for more than two centuries it has widened our understanding of the world? (Geographical Magazine)

Bringing the landscape alive as no other writer can, he uses his profound and eclectic understanding of cultures and peoples ... to paint vivid pictures - nobody has illuminated the geography of Europe better (Geographical Magazine)

'Extraordinarily engaging . . . thanks to Leigh Fermor's ability to turn an insight into a telling phrase . . . a compelling story' (London Review of Books)

Book Description

A glorious fusion of scholarship, history and imagination: mountainous Greece by the master traveller and writer who brought you A TIME OF GIFTS.

About the Author

After his famous walk across Europe - recounted in A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water - Patrick Leigh Fermor lived and travelled in the Balkans and the Greek Archipelago. In the Second World War he joined the Irish Guards, became a liaison officer in Albania and fought in Greece and Crete - living disguised as a shepherd in the mountains for two years organising resistance activities. He was awarded the DSO and CBE, and a knighthood in the 2004 new Year Honours List.
