About this title


"Dear me! It is a strange world. Particularly the Indian division of it." Mark Twain's quip arose in the course of an around-the-world lecture tour. Driven by financial necessity, the famed humorist and student of human nature undertook a year-long series of far-flung engagements that would provide both ready cash and the material for one of his most successful books: Following the Equator, which recounts the author's experiences during a two-and-a-half-month sojourn through India.
A century after the publication of Following the Equator, Ian Strathcarron re-creates Twain's itinerary. Strathcarron — who followed Twain's journey through the Middle East in a previous travel book, Innocence and War — begins in Bombay, faithfully retracing his predecessor's steps through Benares, Calcutta, Darjeeling, Delhi, Lahore, and other stops along the Grand Tour of 1896. The modern-day writer offers fascinating insights into the region's timeless qualities as well as the rampant changes that have occurred in the course of the past century.

About the Author:

Ian David Patrick Macpherson, 3rd Baron Strathcarron, has had a varied career as a journalist, business executive, and spy novelist. He currently devotes himself to writing about his re-creations of famous writers' travels.
