Travels with Herodotus is a non-fiction book written by the Polish journalist, Ryszard Kapuściński, published in 2004 and now available in English translation. This book mixes together a collection of Kapuściński's own experiences and excerpts from the book The Histories by Herodotus which serves not only as a companion in his often long and lonely journeys but also as a guide to the conflicts that waged in current times (such as East vs. West and the debate over whether many European customs originally came from Africa).
