"[The book] brings equal parts scholarship and literary detection to its unmasking of the fabulous (from 'fable') lives and fortunes of Defoe's predecessors and followers. From Father Hennepin and Admiral de Fonte's imaginary maps stimulating hopes of a Northwest Passage, to Coreal's fictitious 'noble savage' to Foul Weather Jack Byron's giant Patagonians, travel hoaxers frequently left their counterfeit stamp on the topography, economics, science and literature of successive generations."
