Nick Hunt

Nick Hunt has walked and written across much of Europe, its landscapes, cultures, people, history, wildness, myths and stories. His articles have appeared in the Economist, the Guardian and other publications, and he works as an editor for the Dark Mountain Project. His previous books, Walking the Woods and the Water (Nicholas Brealey, 2014), and Where the Wild Winds (2017) were both finalists for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year.  They have established him as someone who writes about Europe – its landscapes, cultures, people, history, wildness, myths and stories – first following a previous traveller’s footsteps, then its named winds. They are published in Germany, Spain and the Netherlands
