Overview

James Rumford, himself a world traveler, has retold Ibn Battuta’s story in words and pictures, adding the element of ancient Arab maps—maps as colorful and evocative as a Persian miniature, as intricate and mysterious as a tiled Moroccan wall. Into this arabesque of pictures and maps is woven the story not just of a traveler in a world long gone but of a man on his journey through life.

Traveling Man was definitely not to my taste. It lacked an interesting historical content and storyline. It didn't have a good plot(at all). The main character was not interesting. The illistration of the horse was demented.
