Review

Praise for The Road to There

"Filled with details and insights and written with a storyteller's touch, this book will simultaneously inform and fascinate readers."
-- School Library Journal [starred review]

"Ross covers plenty of historical ground in this wide-ranging discussion of maps and mapmakers.... An eclectic presentation... fascinating to young people..."
-- Booklist

"In 13 chapters (or stories), Ross charts a route, notable for its verve, vitality and scholarship .... [N]ew worlds will be sensed if not seen by her readers as they travel with her from There to Here."
-- The Globe and Mail

..".engaging... The most extraordinary feature is that the author...uses a short-story style, combining facts with a distinct narrative voice."
-- VOYA
