Product details

Product description


Nothing short of a masterpiece - Jan Morris

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

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
