#16935 A Cretan Legend Passes On

Sand news indeed. A great man and a great writer. His contribution to writing about travel along many parts of the world will always remain in my mind the best that could ever be achieved. Mani and Roumeli are of course his greatest contributions to Greece but equally superb are his two volumes of travel across Europe as a young man in the 1930’s. I am eagerly awaiting the third volume now, to maintain in my mind for many years to come the magic of Fermor’s writings.
