This title reveals the captivating travels and adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle - the creator of Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle was not simply the creator of the world's greatest detective; he was also an intrepid traveler and extraordinary travel writer. His descriptions of his journeys and adventures - which took him to the Arctic and the Alps, throughout Africa, Australia, and North America, and across every ocean in between - are full of insight, humour, and exceptional evocations of place. Until now, these captivating travelogues have never been gathered together. In this book, Andrew Lycett, Conan Doyle's celebrated biographer, collects and annotates the best of his writings from around the world, which illuminate not just the places he visited, but the man himself.
