“This volume is published in response to numerous requests from many sections. And my purpose is to put in permanent and convenient form the observations made during travels in the old world.

The illustrations will throw light on the subjects treated and it is believed will add much to the interest. The photographs from which they were made were collected at the places visited or taken by members of our party. Chapters one to forty-six were written from time to time during the trip around the world.”

Description

“This volume is published in response to numerous requests from many sections. And my purpose is to put in permanent and convenient form the observations made during travels in the old world.

The illustrations will throw light on the subjects treated and it is believed will add much to the interest. The photographs from which they were made were collected at the places visited or taken by members of our party. Chapters one to forty-six were written from time to time during the trip around the world.

I was accompanied on this tour by my wife and our two younger children. William J Jr and Grace. Aged sixteen and fourteen years respectively. The trip was taken for educational purposes and proved far more instructive than we anticipated.

We left our home September 21. 1905. Sailed from San Francisco Septem ber 27. And arrived in New York August 29. L9o6 — the day before the date fixed for the home-coming reception in that city — and reached Lincoln Septem ber 5. Sixteen days less than a year after our de’parture.

While most of our travel was in the North Temperate Zone. We were below the Equator a few days in Java and above the Arctic Circle in Norway.

In this narrative I fear I have sacrificed literary style to conciseness. For I have endeavored to condense and crowd into the space as much information as possible. The statement of facts may be relied on. Being based either upon observations gathered at first hand from persons worthy to be trusted. Or taken from authoritative writings.

Mrs. Bryan assisted me in the collection of materials and the preparation of the matter. And I am also indebted to the American Ambassadors. Ministers and Consuls. As well as to the officials of the countries which were visited. For valuable information.”

Trying to balance his new responsibilities for the government and protect those he holds most dear, Stiles is drawn in to a criminal syndicate with links to international terrorism. ‘Bang and Burn’ is the first in an action-packed thriller series exploring the hidden connections between espionage, international fraud dealings and the deadly potential of information technology.

  • Tales of Mean Streets

    These stories are a brilliant evocatin of a narrow, close-knit community—that of the streets of London’s East End in the 1890s. Having lived and worked there, he knew that his East Enders were not a race apart, but ordinary men and women, scraping by perhaps, but neither criminals nor paupers. He chronicled their adventures and misadventures, their wooings and their funerals, with sympathy, humor and a sense of both the tragedies and comedies to be found in the “mean streets, ” from Lizerunt’s disastrous marriage to Scuddy Lond’s plausible but imperfect conversion and “Squire” Napper’s quickly dispersed fortune.
