"In 1971, Leigh Fermor accompanied five friends on a remarkable journey into the high Andes of Peru, from Cuzco to Urubamba, on to Puno and Juli on Lake Titicaca, down to Arequipa, and finally back to Lima. The expedition, led by a writer and poet, included a Swiss international skier and jeweller, 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 travelled into increasingly remote regions, Leigh Fermor recorded experiences in this series of letters to his wife. N. B."
