I picked up this book of essays for the title one, Tugman's Passage. Loved that essay.

At this point, many of these essays, written in the 70s, seem dated. Others, more solidly related to nature seem less so. However, it was interesting to read his essays on Cairo and Africa to see his comments from that point in time, and to see how things have evolved since then.

A solid find from my favorite local used book store, and a great introduction to an interesting essayist.
