Product Description

This book reveals the captivating travels and adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle--the creator of Sherlock Holmes.

Until now, these captivating travelogues have never been gathered together. In this ground-breaking book, Andrew Lycett, Conan Doyle's celebrated biographer, collects and annotates the best of his writings from around the world, which illuminate not just the places he visited, but the man himself.This book reveals the captivating travels and adventures of Arthur Conan Doyle--the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
