Despite mass tourism, the island of Crete still contains many stretches of unspoilt countryside where Byzantine churches nestle in the lee of wild and wooded hills. This selection of writings by travellers who journeyed across the island in the 18th and 19th centuries captures the real sense of remoteness and adventure it once possessed. The first of three volumes covering the entire island, this fascinating book is extensively illustrated with maps and modern colour photographs.
