A Traveller’s Year: 365 Days of Travel Writing in Diaries, Journals and Letters

Travis Elborough, Nick Rennison

A Traveller’s Year is an anthology of extracts from diaries, journals and letters, two or three for each day of the year, on the subject of travel and exploration.

The extracts convey men and women’s experiences of travel and discovery throughout the centuries from classical times to the early twenty-first century, with an emphasis on the period 1750 - 1950, the classic era of both European exploration and diary-writing.

The authors of the pieces range from famous explorers such as Captains Cook and Scott to modern travel writers journeying through the contemporary world, from people who pushed back the boundaries of geographical knowledge to people who wrote about what they did on their summer holidays.
