The Bradt Travel Guide. Ghana. 2001. Guilford, CT: Globe Pequot Press

Description from http://gilfind.gsu.edu.

Michaud, Roland. 2005. India: Journey through the Heart of a Continent. New York: Abbeville Press
To say this book features thirty-five years worth of photographs of India hardly describes this work. The lush photos of people, street scenes, landscapes, and buildings immerse one in the subcontinent's magic and mystery. There are also readable, brief articles sandwiched between the pictures.

Will, Frederic. 1967. From a Year in Greece. Austin, TX: University of Texas Press
A terse account of a driving trip through Greece in the mid 1960's. What makes the book unusual for the modern reader is the presence of the Cold War and Greek dictatorship, the near absence of American tourists, and the remoteness of rural Greek villages. Will is also content to journey alone in his car, though he meets Greeks in assorted towns and cities and as hitch hikers on country roads.

Yapp, Nicholas. 1999. London: the Secrets and the Splendour. Cologne, Germamy: Konemann
Almost as good as a trip to London, this marvelous book provides an eclectic tour of one of the world's greatest cities. Not quite a guidebook, but not a coffee-table tome, either, London is a visual feast with a breezy style to match.
