Authors

Best Travel Books has put together a list of authors (at last count 91!) who have written travel and travel-related books. These are listed below in alphabetical order, along with the book for which, arguably, they are best known (in the travel genre). The list only includes authors that we have read, although the list of books also includes those which we haven't read or reviewed. As there are a lot of books listed that we haven't read there may be a few errors in the information provided, so please let us know of any that might occur.

We hope this list provides you with a whole lot more resources in which to lose yourself in. Wishing you happy and safe reading!
