In this fiercely poetic and haunting book, Berlin tells of his quest for the Gypsy people. From the beech glades of the New Forest to the salt flats of the Camargue, his passionate journey took him to strange places and led him into strange companionship. With his close friend Augustus John, he sought the reality behind the legend and found that reality and legend were one.
