A sparkling, original anthology of travel-writing through the ages from the country's best-loved travel-writer.
In 1985 Eric Newby compiled an immensely successful anthology of travel-writing called 'Travellers Tales', which was distinguished by its originality and the genuine affection with which each entry had been chosen and described by Newby. His enthusiasm and love for the subject shone out on every page.
Now in his early eighties, Newby is compiling another volume and the book could well replicate the critical and commercial success of the first, for it will have all the same qualities; a sumptuous treat for the armchair traveller and Newby fan.
Major new anthology from the much-loved octogenarian, the king of travel-writers; while most anthologies are simple collections, Newby imbues his with his own effervescent and irreverent personality.0006552129
