Roaming through history: New travel books

By Amy

Welcome to this month’s selection of newly acquired travel books.

While traveling offers the chance to explore historical sites, books ignite the imagination and can transport readers to historical moments in our world’s past. In this month’s new travel books, we can sail the seven seas with pirates in The Penguin Book of Pirates or investigate George Mallory’s last expedition in Fallen. You can also learn of some incredible sites to visit like the places in Zen Gardens and Temples of Kyoto. Check them out now!
