The world has been spinning extraordinarily fast the past several decades and fewer and fewer have memories of what life was like in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Burton Holmes had a camera and a great desire to share his travel experiences through photos, film and lectures.

Today, they are ours again in this wonderful book that takes us back to times and places that we don't recognize today. He shares the humanity of the past with the humanity of the present and future generations to come.

His journey shows us how life hasn't changed and how drastically it has changed since these photos were taken.

For me, it's very special. I have made it a gift to my family members and to my child. I want it to be seen and read for generations to come.

It helps me get a grip on what's really important on this planet. Sharing without borders.

An excellent travel and photography resource -- particularly for the photographer who aspires to shot photos of broad scenery and interesting people going about their daily lives. Also very enjoyable for the experienced traveler to see what places they have been to recently looked like early in the 20th century. This book is worth much more the the modest amount it costs!

What an absolutely amazing book! The photos are simply stunning and painstakingly hand-coloured to bring them to life. The text is taken from Holmes' own writings which, in conjunction with the photos, gives us an insight into life back then all around the world. The things he saw and did are just staggering. This is a wonderful book that will be cherished for many years to come.

Burton Holmes travelogues is excellent with all the photos of places that shows you how it was actually. I have visited some of these places and love to see what these places looked 100 years ago
