*** THE BOOK WHICH INSPIRED RICK STEIN TO TRAVEL THROUGH GREECE ON HIS LATEST TELEVISION SERIES *** Fired by a long enthusiasm for all things Greek, Edward Enfield mounts his trusty Raleigh to follow in the footsteps of such notable travellers to Greece as Benjamin Disraeli, Edward Lear and the Romantic poet Lord Byron. Fortified by delicious fish dinners and quantities of draught retsina, he tackles the formidable roads of the Peloponnese before plunging, on a later trip, into the rugged heartlands of Epirus and Acarnania. His travels are set against the great panorama of Greek history - Greeks and Romans, Turks and Albanians, Venetians, Englishmen and Germans all people his pages. An enchanting travelogue that combines wit, charm and scholarship, "Greece On My Wheels" is a superb example of travel writing at its unforgettable best. AUTHOR: Edward Enfield has been a columnist for The Oldie magazine since 1992, has written for publications including the Daily Express, The Guardian and The Sunday Telegraph, and has appeared on television in Watchdog, the BBC's Holiday programme, Points of View and The Heaven and Earth Show.
