Wanderlust is an anthology complied from 20 brilliant and passionate travel writers of Jewish origin. These are first hand accounts by men who abandoned the comforts of home and family and paid a high personal price for their Wanderlust. They struggle with discomfort, deprivation and perhaps worst of all, uncertainty – which is the essence of the exploration process. North Pole, mountain climbing, volcano exploration, dinosaur fossil and Big Game hunting, African, and Asian explorations are documented. Richly illustrated with maps and photographs. Each chapter is introduced with a biography of the explorer. The significance of the journey is given historical context.
