Publisher's Summary

Addressing the explosive growth in ancestral travel, this compelling narrative combines intriguing tales of discovery with tips on how to begin your own explorations.

Actor and award-winning travel writer Andrew McCarthy's featured story recounts his quest to uncover his family's Irish history while 25 other prominent writers tell their own heartfelt stories of connection. Spanning the globe, these stories offer personal takes on journeying home, whether the authors are actively seeking long-lost relatives, meeting up with seldom-seen family members, or perhaps just visiting the old country to get a feel for their roots. A foreword by the Genographic Project's Spencer Wells sets the scene.

Parts of the book were very interesting - other parts were okay. I guess it all depends on a person's interests..

Did Journeys Home inspire you to do anything?

Yes, it instilled in me a desire to record some of my childhood memories for my posterity and seek out my ancestors and distant relatives.
