Duration: 8 hours 43 minutes
Addressing the explosive growth in ancestral travel, this compelling narrative combines intriguing tales of discovery with tips on how to begin your own explorations. Actor and award-winning travel writer Andrew McCarthy’s featured story recounts his quest to uncover his family’s Irish history, while twenty-five other prominent writers tell their own heartfelt stories of connection. Spanning the globe, these stories offer personal takes on journeying home, whether the authors are actively seeking long-lost relatives, meeting up with seldom-seen family members, or perhaps just visiting the old country to get a feel for their roots. A foreword by the Genographic Project’s Spencer Wells sets the scene.
“The reader gets to see the world in a way that only the author can show it and vicariously inhabit a self that only one person can be…McCarthy achieves this with charm and credibility.”—Cheryl Strayed, #1 New York Times bestselling author, on The Longest Way Home
