An evening with Nick Hunt
Friday 17th November 19:00 at York
'Travel writing in excelsis' -Jan Morris, author of Venice
'A thrilling and gorgeous tale, packed with meteorological wonder' -Amy Liptrot, author of The Outrun
Nick Hunt sets off on an unlikely quest: to follow four of Europe's winds across the continent...
These are journeys into wild wind, but also into wild landscapes and the people who inhabit them - a cast of meteorologists, storm chasers, mountain men, eccentric wind enthusiasts, sailors and shepherds. Soon Nick finds himself borne along by the very forces he is pursuing, through rain, blizzards, howling gales, and back through time itself. For, where the wild winds are, there are also myths and legends, history and hearsay, science and superstition - and occasionally remote mountain cabins packed with pickles, cured meats and homemade alcohol.
Where the Wild Winds Are is a beautiful, unconventional travelogue that makes the invisible visible.
Nick Hunt has walked and written across much of Europe. His articles have appeared in The Economist, The Guardian and other publications, and he works as an editor for the Dark Mountain Project. His first book, Walking the Woods and the Water was a finalist for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year.
