Throughout history, humans have sought to push the boundaries of the unknown, and they have shared their journeys with others by recording them in printed form. These sixteen volumes, spanning twenty-six centuries and ranging in genre from memoir to adventure narrative, can only begin to capture the depth of human curiosity. Together, they show the remarkable breadth of human exploration: both the imagined and the real, the near and the far. Come and explore Wonder, the South Pole and beyond with this new exhibit from the Grinnell College Libraries Department of Special Collections.
