The Telegraph Book of Great Railway Journeys
9781781314944   Product Code: 24023
In an age when low-cost flights have made continental travel mundane, it takes a railway journey sweeping through mountains and valleys to restore a sense of adventure. Drawing on the archive of the Daily Telegraph's travel section, this anthology ranges from Michael Palin on the Settle to Carlisle to Nicholas Crane on the slow train to Istanbul. Richly atmospheric, hilarious and alarming by turns, this is travel writing at its very best. No jacket.
