Where the Wild Winds Are

Reisebericht von Nick Hunt

Nick Hunt sets off on an unlikely quest: to follow four of Europe’s winds across the continent… His wind-walks begin on Cross Fell, the highest point of the Pennines, as he chases the roaring Helm – the only named wind in Britain. In southern Europe he follows the Bora – a bitter northerly that blows from Trieste through Slovenia and down the Croatian coast. His hunt for the ’snow-eating‘ Foehn becomes a meandering journey of exhilaration and despair through the Alpine valleys of Switzerland, and his final walk traces an ancient pilgrims‘ path in the south of France on the trail of the Mistral – the ‚wind of madness‘ which animated and tormented Vincent Van Gogh.

Der Engländer Nick Hunt hat zwei sehr ungewöhnliche Wanderberichte erstellt. “There are poignant moments of calm amid the tumult, insights that capture the joy of walking alone.” (The Times Literary Supplement) (31 Rezensionen / 4,6 Sterne), 272 Seiten noch günstig?
