A journey through the stories and histories that forged the Pyrenees.
Kris Ubach invites us on a trip to discover the vast wonder of the Pyrenean landscape, replete with towering peaks and deep valleys, raging rivers and charming villages. A fascinating journey which takes the reader from Irun to Cap de Creus where, as well as beautiful scenery, you'll also discover spies, Nazis, legendary mountaineers, exiles, travelling shepherds and cloistered nuns. A vibrant cast of characters with captivating stories and hidden legends from the soul of the Pyrenees.
We'll also hear from the locals that inhabit the mountain landscape to this day – women and men that retell stories of those no longer with them, that share their memories and their way of life to explain how they have preserved traditions at risk of being forgotten. Their voices punctuate our adventurous journey, giving meaning to each stop along the way.
