Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0709050011, Hardcover)

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 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.
