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 seventy-five thousand miles in all.James Rumford has retold Ibn Battutas story in words and pictures, adding the element of ancient Arab maps--maps as colorful and as evocative as a Persian miniature, as intricate and mysterious as a tiled Moroccan wall.Into this arabesque of pictures and maps, James Rumford has woven the story not just of a traveler in a world long gone but of a man on his journey through life.
