CommentsA different kind of guide to travel issued in Charles Knight's series "Guides to Service." The well-traveled Harriet Martineau advises her readers on the approach to travel, what to look for, how to find it, how to observe it, and how to properly consider and behave when one sees something strikingly different than what one is accustomed to. Her narrative is colored with her philosophical and political perspectives.
