Description

Off the Beaten Path

Laura Stoddart's exquisite and witty drawings have earned her a devoted following. With Off the Beaten Path, she offers a more sublime taste of her artistic talent and sense of humor. In this charming anthology, she pairs her delightful illustrations with sage reflections from intrepid travelers through the ages. Richard Burton on keeping a spouse in the tropics: "There is no place where a wife is so much wanted as in the Tropics; but then comes the rubhow to keep the wife alive." Constance Larymore on surviving Nigeria: "Always wear corsets, to leave off wearing them ...is a huge mistake: there is nothing so fatiguing as to lose one's ordinary support." At turns bizarre, hair raising, hilarious, and inspiring, Off the Beaten Path will amuse both happy wanderers and those who are content to stay at home, thank you very much.
