Good travel writing is not just about the places visited, but also about the experience of the person doing the visiting. Victor Canning was best known as a writer of thrillers but his journeys round England in the 1930's, the observations he made and the people he met, give us a pin-point picture of the country before the 2nd World War. In contrast Mary Kingsley's journeys along the rivers of West Africa to collect specimens of fish and makes notes of local religions show us a very different world. You'll enjoy her battle with French customs officials and with a crocodile.
