First Overland: London-Singapore by Land Rover

Paperback
by Slessor, Tim

They knew that several expeditions had already tried it. Some had got as far as the deserts of Persia; a few had even reached the plains of India.

Paperback
by Newman, Jon
London was once a city awash with watercourses. Most of these streams and small rivers have long since disappeared underground and their void has been filled by myth, legend and an enduring yet uncertain fascination. The River Effra was one of these vanishings. In its earlier existence above ground it could only ever have been a modest tributary of the Thames, but through a vivid subterranean afterlife it h...

The Sahara is the quintessence of isolation, epitomizing both remoteness and severity of environment unlike any other place on the face of the earth. Replete with myths and fictions, it is a wild land, dotted with oases and camel trains trudging through sand dunes that roll like the waves on a sea, as far as the distant horizon.

Other Routes - 1500 Years of African and Asian Travel Writing

This anthology, stretching from the fifth to the nineteenth centuries, introduces an entirely different tradition of travel writing - the work of travellers from the ...
