The expedition, led by a writer and poet, included a Swiss international skier and jeweler, a social anthropologist from Provence, and a Nottinghamshire farming squire--all seasoned mountaineers. The other two participants--Leigh Fermor and a botany-loving duke--were complete novices. As the group traveled into increasingly remote regions, Leigh Fermor recorded experiences in this series of letters to his wife. N. B.
