In the words of Robert
Louis Stevenson, "To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive," and the authors of this book have all given accounts of the fascinating sights and sounds
along the way, whether the journey is from Bangkok to Singapore through tropical Malaysia, or through the awe-inspiring vastness of the Canadian wilderness on the Trans-Canada Highway. Detailed accounts of the route include
local geography and directions, historical anecdotes, and evocative descriptions of contemporary living, as well as practical information on how and when to travel and satellite mapping. Rich in history
, culture, and life, all these journeys inspire wonder--some at the audacity of people to navigate through seemingly impossibly environments, some at the power and beauty of the natural world.
