Not simply the creator of the world's greatest detective, Arthur Conan Doyle was also an intrepid traveler and extraordinary travel writer. In this anthology, Doyle biographer Andrew Lycett collects and annotates the best of his writings from around the world, which illuminate not just the places he visited, but the man himself. Doyle's descriptions of his journeys and adventures as a ship's doctor—which took him to the Arctic and the Alps, throughout Africa, Australia and North America, and across every ocean in between—are full of insight, humor, and exceptional evocations of place.
