Ox Travels: Meetings with Remarkable Travel Writers by Mark Ellingham (ed.)
Ox-Travels is a collection of travel writing with stories donated by world class travel writers, for the benefit of Oxfam.
You have to go back to the 1980s and Granta's bestselling travel issue to find a book that compares to Ox-Travels. Introduced by Michael Palin, OxTravels features original stories from twenty-five top travel writers including Paul Theroux, Sara Wheeler, William Dalrymple, Patrick Leigh Fermor, Jan Morris, Dervla Murphy and others.
Each of the stories takes as its theme a meeting - life changing, affecting, amusing by turn - and together they transport readers into a brilliant, vivid atlas of encounters.
