"Deep down inside me a tiny voice was calling. At first scarcely audible, it persisted until I could no longer ignore it. It was the voice of the wild places, and I knew that it was now part of me forever."—Percy Fawcett

Throughout the ages, adventurers have followed that wanderlust-fueled little voice inside. Sometimes they'd end up on top of the world. And sometimes they'd end up, well…just gone. But they always left exciting stories in their wake! Origins of a Journey is packed with history's most significant, unique, and captivating travel tales. Each just a couple of pages long, these riveting accounts of explorers, pilgrims, scholars, and daredevils are sure to thrill reckless swashbucklers and careful historians alike. (CH)
