Description
Before he gave us Nathaniel's Nutmeg and Big Chief Elizabeth, Giles Milton's first book was this sparkling travelogue in the legendary footsteps of Sir John Mandeville, the now-forgotten knight who was once the most famous writer in medieval Europe. Mandeville's 14th-century book about his voyage around the world became a beacon for many great expeditions of the Renaissance, and his exploits and adventures provided inspiration for Shakespeare, Milton, and Keats. By the enlightened 19th century his claims and his legitimacy were largely discredited, but in Milton's latter-day sojourn he wonders if Mandeville may indeed have tramped these routes, and was inspired to fantasy by sights that his medieval mind could hardly grasp.
