Literature for travel junkies

Stanford Travel Classics are a lovely edition of some landmarks of adventure and travel writing. These true classics of the genre have been given a new lease on life by John Beaufoy Publishing in a compact, modern format at $24.95 each. If you’d like to join a solo circumnavigation of the globe Sailing Alone Around the World by Joshua Slocum is for you. Perhaps an Antarctic expedition is more your style; settle down with South! by Sir Ernest Shackleton. Or go off the beaten track in First World War northern Africa with an unlikely guide with In Morocco by Edith Wharton.
