This edition brings together Tahir Shah's full collection of travel writing: from India to Africa to South America, join the author on his unusual adventures and expeditions around the world.

The first and last books in the collection are of international travels. Beyond the Devil's Teeth is the author's first travelogue, and spans a journey from India, to Africa, to South America. Travels With Myself is a collection of travel essays that span the author's world travels.

Sorcerer's Apprentice is based in India, and chronicles the author's bizarre apprenticeship to a tyrannical master of illusion.

Trail of Feathers and House of the Tiger King are set in Peru. The former details the author's search for the secret of how the ancient Incas flew like birds over the Amazon; the latter covers his expedition that searched for the lost Incan city of Paititi.

In Search of King Solomon's Mines is set in Ethiopia, as the author searches for undiscovered mines known only in folklore.

Shah's overwhelming laugh-out-loud style is present as he educates, informs, and amuses readers about the locations and people he discovers on his journeys.

About the Author
Tahir Shah is the author of more than fifteen books, many of which chronicle a wide range of outlandish journeys through Africa, Asia and the Americas. For him, there’s nothing so important as deciphering the hidden underbelly of the lands through which he travels. Shunning well-trodden tourist paths, he avoids celebrated landmarks, preferring instead to position himself on a busy street corner or in a dusty café and observe life go by. Insisting that we can all be explorers, he says there’s wonderment to be found wherever we are – it’s just a matter of seeing the world with fresh eyes.
