The Traveller's Quotation Book Summary


The Traveller's Quotation Book: A Literary Tour by Jennifer Taylor

This collection of over 300 quotations are culled from travel diaries and writings over several centuries. The quotes include an examination of the dangers of travelling by stagecoach, the horrors of bed bugs at dirty inns, Tobias Smollett complaining of being poisoned by garlic in France, and James Boswell feeling apprehensive during a rough crossing between Skye and Mull and Dickens clinging to the rails during his passage to America. Other veteran travellers such as Thackeray and Mark Twain are joined by Victorian lady travellers and some of today's well-seasoned travellers.
