"A thorough traveler must be something of a geologist, something of a botanist, an archaeologist, an artist, a philosopher, and so on. Through it all he is likely to be friendly with a camera. He must be agreeable in society, contented in solitude, enthusiastic and patient as a fisherman."-- Dave Rust.

Swanson on the title page.
