    DescriptionYou have to go back to the 1980s and Granta's bestselling travel issue to find a book that compares to OxTravels. Introduced by Michael Palin, OxTravels features original stories from twenty-five top travel writers, including Michael Palin, Paul Theroux, Sara Wheeler, William Dalrymple, Patrick Leigh Fermor, Lloyd Jones, Rory Stewart, Jan Morris, Dervla Murphy, Rory MacLean, and others. Each of the stories takes as its theme a meeting - life-changing, affecting, amusing by turn - and together they transport readers into a brilliant, vivid atlas of encounters. This extraordinary collection is published in aid of Oxfam and all royalties from the book will support Oxfam's work.

    Review quote
    "'If you have the slightest curiosity about the world beyond your living room, then this is a collection to die for. What could be a better way to raise funds for Oxfam than to collect these nuggets of worldly wisdom from a galaxy of the very best travel writers. It's impossible to read their contributions without wanting to go and get the rucksack out.' - Michael Palin"
