KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Jupo turns transportation into travel and takes off--on the Nile in a water-borne procession, to the Roman Empire on a network of roads, with an Oriental caravan and its many components, over ruts in vehicles from wagon to carriage to coach, by rail in industrial England, by stagecoach and steamer in frontier America, until TODAY: what's what on an ocean liner, who's who on a plane. Occasionally he collapses time for his own convenience, but never mind--travel is broadening on this fresh, breezy tour.
