"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." So wrote Saint Augustine almost 1,700 years ago, and his words are as true now as they were then. Read your way around the world with some of history's greatest storymakers. As well as the usual suspects, explore some lesser-known but equally amazing journeys, including that of Nobu Shirase - who raced Scott and Amundsen to the South Pole - and Henry "Box" Brown - a slave who posted himself to freedom.
