Download e-book for iPad: De Schotse Marsen (Dutch Edition) by Rory Stewart,Natasha Gerson

By Rory Stewart,Natasha Gerson

Het schitterende relaas van een wandeltocht langs de Engels-Schotse grens door een zoon en zijn 89-jarige vader

Zijn vader leerde Rory Stewart lopen en nam hem als type mee op wandeltochten langs de chinese language Muur en door de Maleise jungle. Nu is vader 89, en trekken vader en zoon er nog eenmaal op uit, langs de Marsen, het grensgebied tussen Engeland en Schotland. Vader arriveert vanuit Schotland, in tartanruit; zoon vanuit zijn huis in het Engelse Lake District, met zijn Punjabi-wandelstok die hij gebruikte tijdens zijn wandeltocht door Afghanistan.
Tijdens hun wekenlange tocht van ruim 500 kilometer (zoon te voet, vader meestal in line with vehicle) tasten ze de verschillen af tussen Engeland en Schotland, te midden van een verstild landschap en halfvergeten dorpjes. Oog in oog met de Muur van Hadrianus delen ze hun oorlogservaringen: vader in Normandië (1944) en Vietnam, zoon in Irak en Afghanistan.
Hun odyssee ontwikkelt zich tot een geschiedenis van de natie, een anatomie van het landschap, een kroniek van het hedendaagse Groot-Brittannië en een intiem portret van twee geboren avonturiers, een vader en een zoon. Stap voor stap proberen ze de traditionele wereld om zich heen te verzoenen met hun eigen onconventionele levens.

Rory Stewart (1973) is schrijver, oud-diplomaat en lid van het Britse Lagerhuis. Tussen 2000 en 2002 wandelde hij 10.000 kilometer door Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal en Afghanistan. Hij werd beroemd met zijn succesvolle boek Tussenstations. Te voet van Herat naar Kabul, over het Afghaanse deel van zijn reis. Het boek kreeg de Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize en used to be een van de tien beste boeken van de long island occasions booklet Review.

'Stewart lijkt bijna de verwezenlijking van Rudyard Kiplings karakter Kim, de alziende, alwetende mannelijke jongen. Stewart observeert, is licht spottend en schrijft prachtig.' The Times

'Een van de meest onverwachte en plezierigste boeken van het jaar. Het boek gonst van geleerdheid en is schitterend doordrenkt van de vriendschap met zijn oude, dappere vader.' The dad or mum, Readers' e-book of the year
