Walking the Woods and the Water is a very good book about a 2500 mile journey in 7 1/2 months. Eighteen year old Patrick Leigh Fermor took this journey from Holland to Turkey. He did not use a map, only his charm and energy to travel across Europe. Through his note-taking he was able to compile this book. His descriptions of the world are unequaled. His innocence of what would be needed to make this journey make the book even more endearing. It made me wish that I were taking this trek with him.
I was given this inspiring book by NetGalley and John Murray Press in exchange for my honest review.
