This British writer now living in the United States has compiled a number of guidebooks. Here he collects 20 accounts of his visits to mostly remote destinations on four continents. He writes of cockfighting in Haiti, train rides in India and China, a camel journey in Morocco, and some jungle hiking adventures. He tells a good story and is particularly adept at capturing the dialog of interesting people he meets along the way. Included are Yeadon's own pen-and-ink sketches. The only element lacking is some kind of unifying theme or focus; no attempt is made to link these accounts. Skillful travel writing suitable for larger travel collections.
