"Here is a poetry collection sure to delight and inspire the adventurous traveler and the armchair dreamer alike. As pilgrims, missionaries and explorers, as soldiers, diplomats, merchants and tourists, the British have for many centuries ventured forth to see the world. Among them have been great poets like Marvell, Shelley, Coleridge, and Rossetti, and some whose voices are less well-known, brought together for the first time in an anthology that charts the British abroad as reflected in their verse" -- publisher description (October 2006).
