The Power of Travel

Dorothy had her trek to the land of Oz. Huckleberry Finn journeyed through the antebellum south. Odysseus traveled home. So many of the greatest stories ever told are not just about the characters, they are about the distance being traveled and the hardships being overcome along the way. 480 more words
