This is a compendium of travel writing from a master traveller Paul Theroux who celebrates fifty years of wandering the globe by collecting the best writing on travel from the books that shaped him, as a reader and a traveller. Part philosophical guide, part miscellany, part reminiscence, "The Tao of Travel" enumerates 'The Contents of Some Travellers' Bags' and exposes 'Writers Who Wrote About Places They Never Visited'; tracks extreme journeys in 'Travel As An Ordeal' and highlights some of 'Travellers' Favourite Places'. Excerpts from the best of Theroux's own work are interspersed with selections from travellers both familiar and unexpected, including Vladimir Nabokov, Henry David Thoreau, Graham Greene, Ernest Hemingway and more. "The Tao of Travel" is a unique tribute to the pleasures and pains of travel in its golden age.GY HK IL IM IN IQ JE JM JO KE KI KN KW KY LC LK LS MS MT MU MW MY NA NG NP PK PN SB SC SD SG SH SL SO SZ TO TT TV TZ UG VC VG WS YE ZM ZWBY CC CD CF CG CH CI CK CL CN CO CR CU CV CX CZ DE DJ DK DO DZ EC EE EH ER ES ET FI FO FR GA GE GF GL GN GP GQ GR GS GT GW HM HN HR HT HU ID IO IR IS IT JP KG KH KM KP KR KZ LA LB LI LR LT LU LV LY MA MC MD ME MF MG MK ML MM MN MO MP MQ MR MV MX MZ NC NE NF NI NL NO NR NU OM PA PE PF PG PL PM PS PT PY QA RE RO RS RU RW SA SE SI SJ SK SM SN SR ST SV SY TC TD TF TG TH TJ TK TL TM TN TR TW UA UY UZ VA VE VI VN VU WF YTAdvisers.
