Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up

While librarians can confidently send report writers to this volume, it's also the sort of book in which armchair travelers and bibliophiles are bound to get lost. The title covers road trips, historical journeys, explorations, voyages, sacred routes, military campaigns and trails, treks, "natural splendors," and literary jaunts, with each spread focusing on one. The colorful maps are prominent against the white pages but not always the main focus; quality color photos and reproductions, multiple shaded sidebars (including short lists of relevant titles), and pull quotes compete for attention. Captions can be somewhat general in nature and not all artwork is attributed. Though Journeys is not comprehensive, history and literature students will find the basic facts on the campaigns of Alexander the Great, Francisco Pizarro, and Hannibal; the routes of Marco Polo, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and Mungo Park; and the fictional and actual travels of literary figures and characters such as Samuel Johnson and James Boswell, John Steinbeck, and Jules Verne's Phileas Fogg. But it's the surprises-"Highway 61," "The Gringo Road," "The Hippie Trail to Kathmandu," "The Hajj," "The Orient Express," "Odysseus"-that will delight and sidetrack readers. It would be a shame to limit copies of this book to the reference shelves.-Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal
