In Ethiopia With A Mule

Paperback
by Dervla Murphy
In 1966 Dervla Murphy travelled the length and breadth of Ethopia, first on a mule, Jock, whom she named after her publisher, and later on a recalcitrant donkey. The remarkable achievement was not surviving three armed robberies or the thousand-mile trail, but the gradual growth of affection for and understanding of another race.

The Tomb in Seville

Paperback
by Lewis, Norman
It is satisfying, and entirely in keeping with the mischievous character of Norman Lewis, that his very last book, 'The Tomb in Seville', is also his first. For the extraordinary set of misadventures recounted in 'The Tomb of Seville' were first described in Norman Lewis's apprentice-work, 'Spanish Adventure', which he rightly refused to have re-issued in later life.
