Sir Walter Raleigh was a man who liked to travel the globe. He was in good company, as persons stretching all the way back to Herodotus (and before) had a certain wanderlust that could only be quenched by seeking out new lands and experiences. Some of their musings on the places they explored can be found within the electronic pages of the volume presented here by Bartleby.com. The Voyages and Travels work was originally part of the Harvard Classics series, and it contains seven accounts of travel and exploration. These accounts include "An Account of Egypt" by Herodotus, Sir Walter Raleigh's "The Discovery of Guiana", and a narrative of Sir Humphrey Gilbert's trip to Newfoundland in the 16th century.
