Summary
"With a borrowed rucksack and the lifeline of a pound sterling a week, Patrick Leigh Fermor set off in 1933 from Amsterdam to walk to Constantinople -- a trip that was to take him a year and a half. The first part of that walk was recounted in his remarkable work of travel and autobiography A Time of Gifts. Between the Woods and the Water continues the journey.... [He] planned to live like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar -- sleeping in workhouses, monasteries, and barns. But a chance introduction to Bavaria let to a counterpointing of this rough curriculum with leisurely sojourns in castles.... this part of the journey ends at the Iron Gates, where the Balkans begin. A further and final volume will take the author through the Balkan ranges, followed by a northward sally to Wallachia in southeast Rumania, and down the Black Sea coast to his final goal of Constantinople."--Dust jacket flap
