Ibn Battutah—ethnographer, bigrapher, anecdotal historian and occasional botanist—was just 21 when he set out in 1325 from his native Tangier on a pilgramage to Mecca. He did not return to Morocco for another 29 years, traveling instead through more than 40 countries on the modern map, covering 75,000 miles and getting as far north as the Volga, as far east as China, and as far south as Tanzania. He wrote of his travels, and comes across as a superb ethnographer, biographer, anecdotal historian, and occasional botanist and gastronome. With this edition by Mackintosh-Smith, Battuta's Travels takes its place alongside other indestructible masterpieces of the travel-writing genre.

They failed to remove it from the marketplace and after the fact sent me an email saying they ran out and I will not be receiving my book...after a week of waiting for it to come in the mail. Now I need to make an extra trip out to barnes and noble in person because I need the book for my class.
Inconvenient. Bad communication. Will I get my money back? The latter remains to be seen.
