FROM THE PUBLISHER - Much of the romance and adventure of human history centers on the great travel and trade routes of the world. These land and water passages conjure up images of human beings wandering across continents and the high seas, of armies sweeping out in conquest and retreating in defeat, and of rulers building great cities and empires. From the dawn of history, people have traveled over the world’s great natural highways. The most accessible routes - through formidable mountain ranges, barren deserts, down treacherous waterways - have become the most traveled passages on the seven continents and seven seas. Some of these routes are well known to modern travelers. Others are bypassed in our time and still others have been buried under asphalt and assigned anonymous route numbers. TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH offers voyages on more than 45 of the principal travel and trade routes of history. Each of the 31 chapters traces one or more routes, tracking the course of each one over the landscape and following the history of the route in contemporary accounts gleaned from the writings of travelers from many centuries. The character of each route comes to life in these accounts, and each is fully illustrated not only with maps, but also with linecuts and photographs of the routes in past and present times. In all, over 50 maps, and 200 color and black-and-white illustrations complement the text. The routes have been selected from all parts of the world, based on their significance in history and their unique qualities. The result is a moving and vital story of the course of migrations settlements, empires, wars commerce - indeed, of the course of human history. Lovers of history and travel will most certainly be fascinated by this enchanting book. The routes covered are: The Ambassador’s Road and the Burma Road; The Amber Routes; The Appian Way and the Egnatian Way; The California Mission Trail; The Cape Horn Route; The Cape of Good Hope Route; The Eurasian Steppe Route and the Russian River Routes; The Great Desert Route and the Persian Royal Road; The Great North Road; The Great Trek Route and the Missionary Road; The Heraclean Way; The Inca Royal Road; The Incense Road and the Pilgrimage Road; The Indian Grand Road; The Mediterranean-Black Sea Routes; The Mississippi Route; The Mohawk Trail; The Nile Route and the Sudan Route; The North Atlantic Route; The Northeast Passage; The Oregon Trail and the California Trail; The Orient Route; The Panama Route; The Sahara Routes; The St. Lawrence-Great Lakes Route; The Santa Fe Trail and the Chihuahua Trail; The Silk Road; The Spice Route; The Trans-Canada Route; The Western Seaways and the Tin Routes; The Wilderness Road and Trans-Appalachian Routes.
