Inspired by PenguinÂ's innovative Great Ideas series, our new Great Journeys series presents the most incredible tours, voyages, treks, expeditions, and travels ever writtenÂ—from Isabella BirdÂ's exaltation in the dangers of grizzlies, rattlesnakes, and cowboys in the Rocky Mountains to Marco PoloÂ's mystified reports of a giant bird that eats elephants during his voyage along the coasts of India. Each beautifully packaged volume offers a way to see the world anew, to rediscover great civilizations and legends, vast deserts and unspoiled mountain ranges, unusual flora and strange new creatures, and much more.
