From cover:
In 1322, Sir John Mandeville left England on a thirty-four year pilgrimage. He returned and wrote a book claiming it was possible to sircumnavigate the globe. For centuries none doubted Sir John, many regarding him, not Chaucer, as the father of English literature. In the nineteenth century sceptics questioned his voyage, and suspected he never left England at all. The Riddle and the Knight investigates if Mandeville really made his voyage pr whether his book The Travels was a work of imaginative fiction.

I came to today's Helsinki Bookcrossing meeting with absolutely no idea what was in store for me. I left with 19 books!! I'm excted to bring most of these home.

Thank you for the warm welcome Saarahoo. I'll try to take at least one of your books home to Canada - but I'm not sure how many of them can fit in my luggage!
