Overview

Written for the traveler who needs information beyond what is provided in a general guidebook, Travel Resources: An Annotated Guide introduces the reader to comprehensive and specialized travel literature and resources. In this book, author Stephen Walker offers practical and accessible direction for anyone seeking detailed and valuable information on travel, while also instructing readers in ways to find information that may not be included in this guide.

Organized by topic, each topic begins with information that is useful to new travelers so that anyone can begin with any topic without any previous knowledge of it. However, the book also goes further so as to provide information useful to the seasoned traveler. The wide variety of topics related to travel provide many new and possibly overlooked opportunities, even for veteran travelers, and the works included have been selected because of the depth with which each treats its subject matter, in order to ensure that each resource is of the quality that today's traveler demands.

Booklist
Walker, a veteran traveler, offers practical direction for travelers seeking detailed information and also instructs readers on ways to find more information. For libraries, the guide is probably most useful for collection development.
Reference Reviews
This book could serve a public library quite well as a collection development tool as the reviews and comparisons are well written and the subjects are well arranged….This is a thorough and well-written annotated bibliography and analysis of the themes and aspects of practical travel….It is an excellent resource.
