Synopsis

OxTravels Meetings with Remarkable Travel Writers by Michael Palin, Paul Theroux, Sara Wheeler, William Dalrymple

Reviews

'If you have the slightest curiosity about the world beyond your living room, then this is a collection to die for. What could be a better way to raise funds for Oxfam than to collect these nuggets of worldly wisdom from a galaxy of the very best travel writers. It's impossible to read their contributions without wanting to go and get the rucksack out.' - Michael Palin
