Covid vaccines are on the rise and so are travel plans. For those who prefer to be armchair tourists – or who like a different kind of travel yarn – there’s “The Great Journeys in History” (Thames & Hudson, $16.95, 408 pages), edited by Robin Hanbury-Tenison and now in paperback. From Alexander the Great’s conquest of the Persian Empire to NASA’s moon landing and beyond, “Great Journeys” takes you inside many of history’s most significant conquests and explorations in readable vignettes for those on the go.
Who knows? The book may even inspire your next adventure.
