IN THE DOLPHIN’S WAKE – Cocktails, Calamaties and Caiques in the Greek Islands
Author: Harry Bucknall
In the Dolphin’s Wakeis the remarkabale and entertaining record of Harry Bucknall’s journey of over 5,500 miles, lasting 183 days, visiting 36 islands and every island chain plus Mount Athos, Athens and the Turkish mainland; involving 57 sea passages on 35 ferries, 4 landing craft, 3 hydrofoils, 1 fishing caique plus travel by sea plane, 1 twin prop aircraft, 11 buses, 2 trains, an open top Land Rover and a duck egg blue 1961 Morris Oxford.
The unique selling point about In the Dolphin’s Wake is that no one has ever written of a journey through the Greek islands from Venice, in the West, to Istanbul, in the East and which so comprehensively takes in every island chain in the Greek Archipelago. There is quite literally something of interest for everyone – be it history, mythology, folklore, culture or just plain life today.
