Patrick Leigh Fermor
TRAVEL NARRATIVE 2006 PAPER 260 PAGES
An account of travels, history and place by the incomparable Fermor, who lived in Greece for many decades, originally published in 1966. Among his many odd and enlightening adventures, Fermor visits with the Sarakatsans and Kravarites, two remote peoples (ethnography is among his many interests), and chases off to Missolonghi to retrieve a pair of Lord Byron's shoes.
