In this second volume of his captivating account of his travels across pre-war Europe, Fermor continues the epic journey through Hungary to Romania. After travelling by river boat to Budapest, he traverses the Great Hungarian Plain on horseback, and crosses the Romanian border into Transylvania - a land of wild forests, remote castles, mountain villages, isolated monasteries and towering ranges patrolled by bears, wolves, eagles and gypsies.
