Overview

American poet, literary critic, translator, and travel author, Bayard Taylor (1825 � 1878) led a remarkable life and left a fascinating legacy. His travel books are known for their keen details, humor, and adventure. His poetry still stands up and his translations were at one time considered some of the finest.

In 1874, Taylor made a trip to Egypt and Iceland. No one was more surprised than he that he should visit these two disparate lands in one year. Throughout the journey he kept detailed accounts of adventures, mishaps, happy times, and interesting characters he met along the way. In the tradition of classic travel writers, Taylor takes you along to a world that no longer exists.

For the first time, this book is available for e-readers in a well-formatted, affordable edition.
