Review

Between the Woods and the Water is a book so good your resent finishing it. (Sunday Times)

'The finest travelling companion we could ever have... His head is stocked with cultural lore and poetic fancy to make every league an adventure.' Christopher Hudson (Evening Standard)

As full of zest, joy and delight as its predecessor (Country Life)

He is exploring the very furthest boundaries of the genre. (Jan Morris, The Times)

The most enjoyable living writer to be published this year (Peter Levi, The Spectator)

I have never enjoyed a travel book more and I would doubt if I will ever enjoy one so much again (Robin Lane Fox)

Rightly considered to be among the most beautiful travel books in the language (Independent)

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)

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)

'For a spirited introduction [to the Balkans] try Patrick Leigh Fermor's account of a 1930s walk from Hungary to Romania and Bulgaria...rich in local history and a formative book in the rise of modern travel writing' - David Mattin (The Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
