Product description

Review

Nobody covers the world like Lonely Planet.' --New York Post, May 2004

From the Back Cover

After the Italian Armistice in 1943, Eric Newby left the prison camp in which he'd been held for a year and evaded the advancing Germans by going to ground high in the mountains and forests south of the River Po.

In strange isolation he was sheltered and protected for over three months by an informal network of Italian peasants. Newby has written a powerful account of these idiosyncratic and selfless people and of their bleak and unchanging lifestyle – full of funny, bizarre and dangerous incidents interwoven with his hopes of the local girl who was to become his wife.

"An exciting story, superbly told. And wisdom, courage and generosity illuminate it."
PUNCH
