This was an excellent book about the Edwardians, centering on the tropics. At the time the British Empire covered about a quarter of the world.Valerie Pakenham does an excellent job of describing this era. The photographs are wonderful, as are the quotes that stud the book.Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out into the noonday sun (Noel Coward) springs to mind.A really excellent book and it was thanks to Steve reviewing a book that my own book sprang to mind and I found it covered in dust!

Now the dust has been removed.I highly recommend this.
