Summary
In 1773, James Boswell and Samuel Johnson set off on one of the most celebrated trips of all time: a journey around Scotland that they later published in a pair of journals. More than two centuries later, Starr set out to retrace that earlier trip, following the itinerary in reverse and tracking Boswell and Johnson's route as closely as possible. Coupling his own observations on Scottish people and places with passages from Boswell's and Johnson's accounts, the author presents readers with pictures both of Scotland as it is and as it was. Combining biography, history, and humor, this book will interest both globetrotters and armchair travelers. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
