Product description

Review

Nothing short of a masterpiece (Jan Morris)

[Fermor's] gloriously ornate account of that epic journey is a classic of what we might call the 'literature of the leg' (Robert Macfarlane, Waitrose Weekend)

A treasure chest of descriptive writing (Spectator)

Not only is the journey one of physical adventure but of cultural awakening. Architecture, art, genealogy, quirks of history and language are all devoured - and here passed on - with a gusto uniquely his (Colin Thubron, Sunday Telegraph)

Every page of this book is distinguished by an image, a metaphor, a flash of humour always original and sometimes as incisive as a laser beam. (Vincent Cronin)

A tremendous journey ... and he's fabulous company (Manchester Evening News)

This is a traveller's tale at its infectious and informative best; vividly remembered and beautifully written (Church 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)

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)

Book Description

The great travel classic, first published in 1977 and recounting an epic journey of nearly 50 years before, reissued in paperback with an Introduction by Jan Morris
