The Station: Athos: Treasures and Men

by

The Station: Athos: Treasures and Men Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At only 22 years of age, the author of the acclaimed Road to Oxiana traveled with his friends for the first time to Mount Athos in Greece. The eye-opening visit inspired a classic appraisal of its treasures and men--one that immediately established Byron as a major new talent. A deep love for Byzantine civilization and reverence for antiquity glow from every page. "It is a volume that will bear reading again and again"--Daily Telegraph.

Synopsis:

Robert Byron, author of the celebrated "Road to Oxiana", took a trip to Mount Athos with two Oxford friends at the age of 22 and wrote this classic account of its treasures and men. Byron's life was tragically cut short when he was killed during World War II at the age of 36.
