A diary of Herzog's walk from Munich to Paris in the fall of 1974, Of Walking in Ice is a lovely collection of observations of the German and French countrysides, respectively, with a fair measure of petty crimes and paranoia also included. With such a limited print run and beautiful presentation, this book is sure to become a collector's item, even in its second edition.

Quotes Sarah Liked

Werner Herzog
“Meanwhile it's got stormy, the tattered fog even thicker, chasing across my path. Three people are sitting in a glassy tourist cafe between clouds and clouds, protected by glass from all sides. Since I don't see any waiters, it crosses my mind that corpses have been sitting there for weeks, statuesque. All this time the cafe has been unattended, for sure. Just how long have they been sitting here, petrified like this?”
Werner Herzog, Of Walking in Ice: Munich-Paris, 11/23 to 12/14, 1974
