A master of "literature of the leg," Nick Hunt explores four different regions of Europe through their famous local winds. Mixing reportage with old-fashioned adventure, he faces the Helm (northern England), the Bora of the Croatian coast, the Foehn of the Swiss Alps and the Mistral of southern France. Along his way, Hunt meditates on wind legend, history, science and hearsay while meeting a cast of eccentric locals. Hunt’s previous book Walking the Woods and the Water (CEU52) was a finalist for the Stanford-Dolman Travel Book of the Year.
