Every traveler feels himself an explorer. It is hard for any of us to realize, however, as we move around the world that with modern types of transportation great numbers of people are now getting about into places which formerly were limited to an exceeding few. Dr. Peacock has seen the world for himself and he has embellished his descriptions with excellent photographs of his own making. As each of us reads in the writings of others descriptions of what we ourselves have seen, our own memories come to light and our enjoyment is multiplied. Any one who has followed the paths traced by Dr. Peacock will find that his book will yield them enjoyable hours freighted with memories and reminiscences.
