Description
Inviting you to cross ocean, desert, mountain, and ice cap in the company of the world's great explorers, wanderers, and writers, Fergus Fleming's day-by-day anthology of travel writing also ranges across time as widely as it does place, from Christopher Columbus's "discovery" of the West Indies in 1492 to Wilfred Thesiger's wanderings in Arabia's "empty quarter" in the 1940s. Each extract is accompanied by a brief commentary that introduces the writer and brings the context to life. Among the serendipities here: the delight of 17th-century diarist John Evelyn at the spring mildness of Naples in February; the stoic courage of Captain Scott facing death at 40 degrees below zero; and the exasperation of the poet Dylan Thomas at finding himself in a "stifflipped, liverish, British Guest House in puking Abadan."
