    With books from Captain Joshua Slocum, Robert Louis Stevenson and Edith Wharton, this collection features some of the finest historical travel writing of all time.

    Edith Wharton, the author of The Age of Innocence, travelled to Morocco in the final days of the First World War. A time before guidebooks, she recorded her encounters with the country's people, traditions and ceremonies and described the mosques, palaces and ruins she visited in In Morocco. Very observant and brimming with passion, her work will transport you to another era.

    Captain Joshua Slocum sailed the world for over 35 years and embarked on the first solo circumnavigation of the globe. For more than three years, he battled stormy seas, attacks from raiders and loneliness and in Sailing Alone Around the World, he documented it all. Travels with a Donkey in Cevennes is Robert Louis Stevenson's humorous and heart-warming memoirs of a walking trip (with a donley named Modestine) he took in his early 20s.

    This is an eye-opening collection for people interested in travel, history and classic authors.
