*Starred Review* From ancient times to the present, humans have been driven to travel: for trade, for exploration, for fun; to meet new people, indulge in food, explore music and culture. Produced in association with the Smithsonian Institution, Journey traces human travel and exploration chronologically around the globe. Each short chapter presents the people who made the trip, where they went, how they traveled, and the importance of that journey to our understanding of the world. Divided into seven great ages of travel, this lavishly illustrated and well-written volume provides the reader with a sense of the difficulties and the experiences of each voyage. In addition to the 140 main chapters discussing specific travels or travel-related topics (including guide books, souvenirs, advertising, and navigation), the work provides a number of biographies of famous travelers and a list of contemporary journeys that the reader might wish to take. No other travel book includes discussions covering such a wide range of time and space. From ancient Egypt to the Vikings to Marco Polo to Route 66, this work serves as a testament to our desire to roam the world. It will be a good addition for public and school libraries.
