Back Link Best Travel Books

Here is a link to an entry of an interesting blog, Marginal Revolution. The blogger wrote about his favourite travel books. Ok, he references a list, from WorldHum, but as far as blogging is concerned that is very much allowed.

The only books I would add to their lists are:

The Curve of Time, M. Wylie Blanchet
My Old Man And The Sea, A Father And Son Sail Around Cape Horn, by David Hays and Daniel Hays
A Quest Fro Adventure, Chris Bonington

And I disagree with WorldHums choice of Bruce Chatwin’s Songlines as his best travel book, I prefer In Patagonia. I remember reading it way back then (1977) and being completely inspired by the country and the author.
