Traveling Man: The Journey of
Traveling Man: The Journey of Ibn Battuta 1325-1354 by: James Rumford Hardcover; 40 pages Ibn Battuta was the traveler of his ageâ€”the fourteenth century, a time before Columbus when many believed the world to be flat. Like Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta left behind an account of his own incredible journey from Morocco to China, from the steppes of Russia to the shores of Tanzania, some seventy-five thousand miles in all. James Rumford has retold Ibn Battutaâ€™s story in words and pictures, adding the element of ancient Arab mapsâ€”maps as colorful and as evocative as a Persian miniature, as intricate and mysterious as a tiled Moroccan wall. Into this arabesque of pictures and maps, James Rumford has woven the story not just of a traveler in a world long gone but of a man on his journey through life.
