Colin Fletcher is an outstanding travel writer. I am finishing up his book The Man Who Walked Through Time now, preparing for the book club discussion I'll be hosting on my other blog next month. It is really good reading, and I highly recommend that any travel writer have a look at Fletcher's writing in this book. It is a great travel narrative, touching on all the right sorts of things to treat both travel and writing effectively.
The book was written in the 1960s, and it details Fletcher's journey on foot through the Grand Canyon. It is the first recorded journey of someone traversing the length of the Canyon, and it is a beautiful piece of writing.
If you do manage to read Fletcher's work, pop in at my other blog in mid-February and join the discussion. It will be great to have you around and hear your insights on this book.
