This anthology of 50 travel pieces by African American, Caribbean, and African writers spans the the last three centuries. Among the writers included are Frederick Douglass, Richard Wright, Phillis Wheatley, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Edwidge Danticat. The book is divided by theme: the Middle Passage, the upheavals of migration and exile, impressions of Europe, journeys to Africa, official tours, and the concept of home. Each selection is preceded by a brief biography, and a bibliography and suggestions for further reading are included. The collection is to be commended for its sheer variety, featuring voices at at once lively (Sekai Nenza-Shand, "Following the Tracks Back"), acerbic (George C. Wolfe, "Git on Board"), and intimate (C.L.R. James, "Letters to Constance Webb") but never boring. Recommended for all collections.?Ravi Shenoy, Hinsdale P.L., IL
