Product description

Review

Patrick Leigh Fermor is an exquisite among travel writers ... Having a polished sense of poetry and a bright sense of humour, he outshines Lawrence ... This is a delicious book (Sunday Telegraph)

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)

Enthralling and elegant prose ... There could be no better travelling companion than Patrick Leigh Fermor (Daily Mail)

Leigh Fermor's use of English is as exhilarating as the stark beauty of the landscape he describes... there is no one so adept at evoking the melancholy of raw wilderness (Daily Telegraph)

His grand style perfectly captures the country's generous people and magnificent landscape ... Leigh Fermor has an individual and attractive voice, his tales are charming and his mind open (Financial Times)

He makes exotic and entertaining friends wherever he goes, has read everything, been everywhere, known everyone and writes like a dream (The Times)

Book Description

The celebrated twentieth-century travel writer's remarkable journey through the high Andes of Peru.
