Description
Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915-2011) was a war hero whose exploits in Crete are legendary, and above all he is widely acclaimed as the greatest travel writer of our times, notably for his books about his walk across pre-war Europe, A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water ; he was a self-educated polymath, a lover of Greece and the best company in the world. Artemis Cooper has drawn on years of interviews and conversations with Paddy and his closest friends as well as having complete access to his archives. Her beautifully crafted biography portrays a man of extraordinary gifts - no one wore their learning so playfully, nor inspired such passionate friendship.

display_description A biography of the adventurer, soldier, and author whose "enviably colorful life took off when in 1934, at the age of eighteen, he decided to walk across Europe. Before the year was out, he had trekked through nine countries and taught himself three languages, while his enthusiasm and curiosity for every kind of experience made him equally happy in caves or country houses, among shepherds or countesses"--Dust jacket flap.
