Read full description of the books The Mountains of Greece: Trekking in the Pindhos Mountains (Cicerone Mountain Walking):This guidebook contains route descriptions for 41 challenging day walks in the mountains of Greece, namely the Pindhos Range, Athens and the east coast and the Peloponnese areas. The Pindhos Range accounts for the vast majority of them. They can be put together to form continuous multi-day treks but they demand a high degree of commitment and physical ability due to their remoteness and difficult terrain. Most of Greece is mountains, not the islands and seaside that many visitors tend to think of. They are beautiful mountains: rugged, undeveloped, remote and yet accessible. Alpine pastures soften the harshness of the crags, forests fill the ravines, and springs and rivers abound - a startling contrast to the baking lowlands. There is a rich and rare variety of wild flowers and butterflies.
Read information about the authorI grew up in the countryside in England, was educated as a classicist at Oxford University and set off to spend the rest of my life as a bohemian wanderer in the eastern Mediterranean. But we know what happens to the best laid plans... Marriage, children: I ended up teaching, in Greece, Libya, then in London, for the first twenty years of my adult existence. And then I began writing: mostly about travel, mostly about Greece and France; guidebooks, travel journalism, accounts of journeys. My interest has remained the world I originally discovered as a classicist, the countries where Greek and Latin once were spoken, in particular the mountainous bits. I have done translations from and into French and Greek and I have a special interest in schizophrenia because of my own son's plight.
