Where the Wild Winds Are

An unconventional travelogue: 4 walks across Europe following the roaring Helm, Bora, Foehn and Mistral winds. A journey into wild winds and landscapes but also the myths, legends, science and superstition of the people living with the winds. Beginning on Cross Fell, the highest point of the Pennines, as the author chases the roaring Helm - the only named wind in Britain. In southern Europe the author follows the Bora - a bitter northerly that blows from Trieste through Slovenia and down the Croatian coast. The hunt for the 'snow-eating' Foehn becomes a meandering journey of exhilaration and despair through the Alpine valleys of Switzerland, and the final walk traces an ancient pilgrims' path in the south of France on the trail of the Mistral - the 'wind of madness' which animated and tormented Vincent Van Gogh.

Hardback, 258 pages, 5 black and white maps.
