The people, their history and the beauty of an island on the brink of tragedy.
This is the account of a unique journey - a six-hundred-mile trek on foot around Cyprus in the last year of the island's peace.
Colin Thubron intertwines myth, history and personal anecdote in a quest from which the characters and places, architecture and landscape all spring vividly to the reader's eye.
