|Editorial Review||*One comes away from reading him with a joyous consciousness of having seen for the first time a whole world of unsuspected things.* -- Christopher Sykes *Byron's skill at detail while delivering sweeping observations on the politics and turmoil of the times, is not only good fireside reading but it should be the aspiration of any serious writer attempting to define a journey instead of a trip.* -- Kathleen Buckley *He would prove hugely influential: on travel literature, on conservation, and on our appreciation of Eastern cultures.* -- Richard Canning, The Independent|
