Nick Hunt
is a ClimateCultures Author

“I am the author of two travel books. Walking the Woods and the Water is an account of an eight-month walk from the Hook of Holland to Istanbul in the footsteps of Patrick Leigh Fermor, and was a finalist for the Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year 2015. Where the Wild Winds Are is the story of four walks following Europe’s winds. Both are published by Nicholas Brealey. I also write fiction, perform as a storyteller, and work as an editor for the Dark Mountain Project – a network of writers, artists and thinkers who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself.”
