A brand new collection of remarkable travel tales from 'Silver Travelers'. Dervla Murphy traveling in Havana at the age of 74, Matthew Parris swimming the Thames at 60, and Colin Thubron climbing the last stronghold of the Assassins in his 60s are among the writers recounting their adventures, often defying expectations - and the odds - and going outside their comfort zone to take a less-traveled path in later life.
