Why do people migrate? Who were the first travellers in history? And where will we humans travel to next? A World Full of Journeys tells over 50 of the most fascinating stories of human migration throughout history.
Since the dawn of time, people have travelled to distant lands for many different reasons; to escape war, famine or injustice, to find work, or to simply see new sights and have an adventure. But everyone who migrates does it to seek a brighter future. From the very first humans who left Africa almost 70,000 years ago and moved around the world, to immigrants welcomed to America at Ellis Island, this book is packed with fascinating tales of human triumph.
Beautifully illustrated with bright pictures and maps detailing these migrants' journeys, this treasury includes Viking sea traders and Roman armies marching through Europe to Huguenot refugees fleeing persecution from the Catholic church and migrants travelling from the Caribbean to Britain as part of the Windrush Generation. You'll discover that every single journey has the capacity to change the world.
