Three books in one. Book one is a roughly 50-page literary history of John Keats surrounding his 40 day tour to Scotland, where he contracted TB and died of it a few years later at a young age. Book two is a roughly 100-page photo art book in which Carol Walker re-traces his footsteps taking beautiful shots along the way with relevant quotes beneath the pictures. Book 3 are Keat's actual travel notes - they are letter form and were never intended for publication but are presented in heavily footnoted format.

This is the third Carol Walker book I've read and they are all of similar quality and scope. I think this is the 2nd best (Dorothy Wordsworth being the best) - very enjoyable series (and very affordable).
