Top 10 Journeys to the Center of the Soul
The Wizard of Oz (1900 - Novel; 1939 - Film )
Both L. Frank Baum's beloved 1900 novel, "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz," and the equally beloved 1939 film, "The Wizard of Oz," tell the story of Kansas farm girl, Dorothy Gale, and her adolescent adventures in the magical, mysterious, and sometimes dangerous fantasy land. A tornado rattles Dorothy's quiet, provincial existence and when she wakes up in Oz, she has one thing on her mind: getting back home. When she finally does, we are led to believe it may all have been a dream. But that's not the point. Dorothy's real journey is an internal one, and she learns that whether you find yourself on the yellow brick road or along the dirt paths of Kansas, the real adventure is life itself.
