Remember maps? A lot of these writers do. They use them to drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Tangier to Cape Town, and Xinjiang, China, to New Delhi, among other places.
Who needs destinations? This summer, we're focusing on the journey. All these books — some old, some new — will transport you: by train, plane, car, bike, boat, foot, city transit, horse, balloon, rocket ship, time machine and even the odd giant peach. Bon voyage! (Taxes and fees not included).
