Overview

On an extraordinary 663-mile journey through the Scottish Lowlands and southwestern Highlands in the late summer and early autumn of 1803, Dorothy Wordsworth kept a journal. Traveling with her brother William and, for a short time, Samuel Coleridge, she recorded with warmth and wit the adventures, sights, and unspoiled romantic landscape of their trip. Her engaging journal, unavailable for many years, returns to print in this beautiful volume that provides remarkable black-and-white photographs of the Scottish scenes described. Carol Kyros Walker has captured the essence of these places in a photographic essay that follows each week of Wordsworth's journal entries.
