Praise for the Encyclopedia:

A Library Journal Best Reference Source 2003
A ALA/RUSA Outstanding Reference Source 2004

"If reference books were precious stones, then this encyclopedia would rank among the very finest of gems…. This reference will thrill the connoisseur of autobiographical travel while providing contextual date for potential travelers…. As a bonus, the thematic entries illuminate a multitude of topics, from logbooks and the Crusades to volcanology and Romanticism. A researcher's cornucopia and an armchair traveler's delight, this is a significant contribution to genre with a long shelf life. Highly recommended for any library."
Library Journal (starred review)

"A rich and inspiring introduction to primary sources for undergraduate students and advanced high-school students and an excellent source for further research for graduate students and other scholars. Unique in scope and purpose…. Highly recommended for college and university collection and large public libraries."

"Suitable for general audience or for students needing a starting point for research…"
Reference & Research Book News

"This outstanding resource splendidly surveys the world of travel. It should find an appreciative audience in both academic and public libraries."
