Summary

Why do people make pilgrimages to Lourdes in France? Where is the Western Wall and why is it so important to Jews? What is a hajj and who takes it? Some journeys may be made for religious purposes, some for historical reasons, and others just for the challenge. This book investigates the different reasons for traveling. Pilgrimage is explored, from the Muslims visits to Mecca to the Hindus journeys to Varanasi. One of the first Christian journey-stories, the birth of Jesus, is told, as is the story of St. Patrick.
