Captain Cook confidently declaring that no man will ever venture further than he has ...Richard Burton musing on how to keep a wife alive in the tropics ...the unreliable Sir John Mandeville spinning his traveller's tales ...OFF THE BEATEN TRACK is a collection of quotations from intrepid travellers such as Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Marco Polo, Lady Mary Wortley Montague, Mary Kingsley, Isabella Bird, Captain Scott and Freya Stark- all of them are here, some of them awe-struck at the majesty of their surroundings and others distinctly unimpressed. Laura Stoddart's delicious illustrations seize on the unexpected, and make a comment on what the author doesn't say. Her many admirers will find this wittily chosen anthology has all the charm of her very successful first book, UP THE GARDEN PATH 80 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
