The perfect gift for the peripatetic and those who want to be. This compilation of over 500 quotations captures the lure of the open road, the magic of far-off places, the mystery of the road not taken, and the joy of returning home. Gordon Jackson has cast a wide net in compiling this collection, including both familiar sayings and equally insightful observations by unknown authors and travelers. Illustrated with cartoons from The New Yorker collection.

As Lance Morrow said, "People travel because it teaches them things they could learn no other way." So, regardless of how you use this volume, I hope that with Morrow's observation in mind, this collection of quotes will better prepare you for your own travels, serve as a thoughtful companion on the journey, and help you reflect even more richly on your explorations when you return home.
