A Voyage By Dhow


In over 60 years of travelling and writing, Norman Lewis has yet to find a place that is not worth visiting, or to make a journey that is not worth reporting. From pre-war Aden to the jungles of South America, this collection takes the reader through a long and distinguished career: groundbreaking, campaigning articles on the indigenous peoples of the Americas - decimated by disease and bandits, deprived of their religion, and enslaved his love affair with Naples, last of the great, untouched cities and two previously unpublished pieces - a trip, courtesy of the Writers' Union of the USSR, to the Russian Steppes, and a curious voyage to the impenetrable Yemen.
