Detailed Product Description

UK, 1992, 1st edition. 238 pp, many color and b/w photos. Larger hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

John Hillaby is one of the most popular travel writers. This book describes his best walks: in the Ruwenzori, above the Arctic Circle in Canada, Northern Kenya, Morocco, much more.

Hillaby is perhaps best known for his walk from Land's End to John O'Groats, a trek chronicled in Journey Through Britain. A portion of that book appears here along with excerpts from his other travel adventures. His account of visits to the Congo and to the Mountains of the Moon, made during the colonial period, seem dated.

Journey to the Jade Sea recounts Hillaby's camel trek along the Ethiopia-Kenya border to Lake Rudolph (1963). On a trip to Canada's Northwest Territories he looked at a uranium mine and observed Indians (whom he calls "Redmen") driving reindeer over cliffs. The only non-travel piece offers observations about favorite characters in Hillaby's native Yorkshire. The selections are lavishly illustrated with color photographs; the passages chosen from Journey Through Britain are enduring and classic.
