9780140115116: Mani: Travels in the Southern Peloponnese

This is about the remotest, the wildest and the most isolated region of Greece. Cut off from the rest of country by the towering range of the Taygetus, and hemmed in by the Aegean and Ionian seas, this rocky central prong of the Peloponnese is the southern most point of Mediterranean Europe.

Review:

[Mani and Roumeli are] two of the 20th Centuries most celebrated travel books ( Independent on Sunday)

From the Mani he has brought back riches. How can one do justice to the fascination and poetry of this book, its generosity and its learning -- its love? ( The Spectator)

Mani and Roumeli: two of the best travel books of the century ( Financial Times)

Quite outside the range of normal accounts of travel ... He supercharges his narrative with a combination of tenderness and high spirits appropriate to his past achievements as a guerrilla leader in Crete. ( Daily Telegraph)

a man recognised as one of the greatest travel writers of his generation...considered by many to be the finest travel books ever written ( Manchester Evening News)

with a heady mix of scholarship, history and imagination and a magical turn of phrase from Paddy Fermor ( Manchester Evening News)

A natural hero ( Manchester Evening News)

Not to be missed, Yammas! ( Manchester Evening News)

Mani is an extraordinary book of adventure and encounter, fantasy and learning, observation and experience ... it is a wonderfully rich book, richer for the warmth of the Philhellenism which Leigh Fermor betrays throughout. ( Sunday Times)

He supercharges his narrative with a combination of tenderness and high spirits appropriate to his past achievements as a guerrilla leader in Crete. ( Daily Telegraph)

Book Description:
