Traveling Man: The Journey of Ibn Battuta, 1325-1354
James Rumford (au) (il)
Ibn Battuta was the traveler of his age -- the 14th century, in a time before Columbus, when many believed the world was 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 75,000 miles in all. James Rumford, himself a world traveler, has retold Ibn Battuta’s story in words and pictures, adding the element of ancient Arab maps -- maps as colorful and evocative as a Persian miniature, as intricate and mysterious as a tiled Moroccan wall. Into this arabesque of pictures and maps is woven the story not just of a traveler in a world long gone but of a man on his journey through life. “A brilliant, restless traveler.” Juvenile audiences.
