The Adventures of Ibn Battuta

A Muslim Traveler of the Fourteenth Century


In 1325, the young Ibn Battuta set off from his native Tangier to go on the hajj to Mecca and did not return for thirty years. He visited not only Mecca, but also Egypt, Syria, Persia, Iraq, East Africa, Yemen, Anatolia, the steppes of southern Russia, Constaninople, India, the Maldives, Sumatra, and China – a 73'000-mile tour of the Eastern Hemisphere that marked him as the greatest explorer of premodern times. In this extraordinary biography, Ross E. Dunn vividly recounts these explorations and Ibn Battuta's adventures in the Muslim world.
