Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These tales are thematically eclectic and cover spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, romance, solo journeys, service to humanity, family travel, and exotic cuisine, all told from a woman's perspective.

Synopsis:

These inspiring, uplifting tales are told by women who traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new places, people, and, ultimately, facets of themselves. The common threads connecting the stories are a woman's fresh perspective, lively storytelling, and a compelling narrative that makes the reader laugh, cry, and wish she were there. The voices are global and themes are eclectic, with stories that encompass the full spectrum of travel adventure. Pieces in the 2006 collection include discovering Russia at 3,000 feet, learning to save face and start smoking in Italy, learning to dance the tango in Argentina, and journeying from Senegal to Mali on a horse.

Synopsis:

Since the publication of A Womans World in 1995, Travelers Tales has been the recognized leader in womens travel literature. This title presents stimulating, inspiring, and just plain wild adventures from women who have traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new places, peoples, and facets of themselves. The common threads connecting these stories are a womans perspective; fresh, lively storytelling; and compelling narrative that makes the reader laugh, weep, wish she was there, or be glad she wasnt. Contributors include such luminaries as Frances Mayes, Barbara Kingsolver, and Diane Johnson. Kathleen Spivaks “From the Window,” a bittersweet, beautifully written memoir of lost love in Paris, typifies the book. The points of view and perspectives are both personal and global, and the themes are as eclectic as in all of this series, including stories that encompass spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, high adventure, romance, solo journeys, stories of service to humanity, family travel, and encounters with exotic cuisine.
