A Victorian 'review' of traveller's stories for young people, starting with Sinbad and going up through 17th and 18th century claims. The author retells the stories with some zest, and then analyses whether or not they might be true; his conclusions are, of course, often laughable to a modern reader, but I enjoyed it anyway.
