Hitting Europe’s Heights
Veteran journalist-turned-author, Matthew Carr has built his impressive career by unearthing some of history’s overlooked tales. His latest book, Savage Frontier, uncovers the dramatic story of the Pyrenees, an area of great significance throughout Europe’s troubled history. Its star-studded cast includes Napoleon, Hannibal and Charles the Great, while British interest will be piqued by eccentric climber Lord Henry Russell.
