There and Back: Twelve of the Great Routes of Human History

Stewart Gordon (Author)

Though travelling is lauded as a means of enriching our lives, the emphasis is generally on the destination rather than the journey. Yet, throughout human history, routes have ferried not just people but books, scrolls and art, in addition to armies, ambassadorial entourages, slaves, brides and pilgrims. The interaction of people on routes generated surprising innovations.

Through myths, memoirs and songs associated with twelve such great routes across five continents, historian Stewart Gordon shows how they captured the collective imagination and shaped the expectations of generations of would-be travellers.
