The Call Of The Volcano

L’appel du volcan, by Claude Marthaler

The Call Of The Volcano is the new book by a writer and explorer of far-flung corners of the globe, travelling on foot or by bicycle, and has recently climbed the world’s tallest volcan.

Here this seasoned writer talks about the internal “volcano” that prompts him to set out on his bike and go travelling, again and again. Chapter by chapter he reveals the private, personal impulses that forced him to choose a life of restless wandering.

This book is for fans of adventures and exploration in the natural world who will love the no-nonsense, idiosyncratic perspective of a writer whose wanderings have taken him all over the globe.
