10 ROUTES THAT CROSSED THE WORLDWhere world history and geography intersect


By Gillian Richardson. Illustrated by Kim Rosen. A mix of fictionalized tales, related artwork, and pertinent facts provides students with a distinctive view of world history and geography as they journey along ten different routes that have played significant roles in human history. The engaging volume unearths stories of discoveries, migrations, wars, and conquests as it invites readers to walk with the first people who crossed Beringia into the Americas, marvel at roads built by the Romans in England and by the Inca in South America, courageously travel through the Khyber Pass and along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, and meet pioneers in search of gold on the icy Chilkoot Trail, faithful pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago, and Russian prisoners who built the Trans-Siberian Railway. Grades 6–10. Index. Bibliography. Further reading. Annick. 162 pages. ©2017.
