Editorial Reviews

Review

"It’s National Geographic, thus I need hardly to mention that the photos make you want to hit Trip Advisor, but the text, too, is mesmerizing." —Library Journal

"Journeys Home is part inspirational, part informational and written completely from the heart. If you long to know more about your family's past, but don't know why or how you should start your search, Journeys Home will motivate and encourage you to begin." —About.com

"This is a superbly interesting book that is liberally sprinkled with stunning images that are the hallmark of all National Geographic publications." —Apogeephoto.com

"Family secrets, mysteries, and lore are the impetus for the emotion-filled sojourns described in this beautifully illustrated essay collection and genealogy guide."
Library Journal

"These 26 essays range from the prosaic (Illinois) to the mysterious (Tanzania), all with lovely color photos." —Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"We’ve come to expect NatGeo travel guides to be arrestingly—no, beautifully—illustrated...but the [book's] beauty is matched by copious information brimming with heart and soul." --Booklist
