is the tale of travel and adventure. It is based on the travels of
Benjamin during the middle ages. Benjamin was a Jewish wanderer who
left his home in Spain to visit the places he had heard about in the Bible.
Travel during the 12th century was hard and dangerous. Most people
did not return alive from their journeys. But Benjamin did and he
told of his adventures in a book. These tales are retold here and
wonderfully illustrated. We get a good feel for what it must have
been like for Benjamin on his voyage.
