520    "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 recent 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. Sidebars and a hefty resource 
       section provide tips and recommendations on how to go 
       about your own research, and a foreword by the Genographic
       Project's Spencer Wells sets the scene. Stunning images, 
       along with family heirlooms, old photos, recipes, and more,
       round out this unique take on the genealogical research 
       craze"--Provided by publisher.
