Rory Maclean, Rory Stewart and Peter Robb
Hay Festival 2004
In Maclean's Falling for Icarus our intrepid adventurer sets off to Crete, where, with help from his Cretan neighbours, he attempts to build a woodhopper from scratch and make it fly. In 2001, Stewart, now Deputu Governor of a province in Iraq, set off from Heart to walk to Kabul via the mountains of Ghor in central Afghanistan. Robb's A Death in BRazil engages the politics, history and culture of South America's carnival superpower.
