50 Essential Travel Books

News from Tartary: A Journey from Peking to Kashmir by Peter Fleming
AbeBooks: 50 Essential Travel Books: A good author should always suffer for his or her art. Well, the best travel writers suffer more than most, so perhaps that’s why their books are so memorable. A journey without problems is a dull one and this selection of essential travel writing details obstacles like a boat sinking in 60 seconds in the middle of the ocean and a country on the brink of civil war. When a book is called In the Land of White Death then you know the author faced more problems than missing a bus.
