Editorial Reviews

'Hearing of this title my heart sunk a little, a book filled with (mostly) Victorian moustache twiddling tales of derring do - or so I thought - how wrong can you be? Instead the word journey has been interpreted in its broadest sense.' - Sue Baker (Love Reading) Voted as October 2016 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.'If you want some journey inspiration.' - Levison Wood
