Gutsy Women: More Travel Tips and Wisdom for the Road Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

It's winter. The holidays are over. For those living in areas where it's still snowing, and even where it's just cold or rainy, it's the time of year when magazines, newspapers, radio, and television are tantalizing us with ads of warm beaches, sunshine, relaxation, water sports, and foo-foo drinks with little umbrellas sticking out of them.

Many of us would love to be able to travel to someplace warm, or to a far away place for a new adventure. However, we may not have the time or the resources to do so. Fortunately, Travelers' Tales has just the armchair adventure travel anyone can experience — the beaches of Thailand, dining on the banks of the Seine, running with the bulls of Pamplona, purchasing a suit in Hong Kong, climbing the Himalayas — all for only $17.95 (no shots or visa required).

O'Reilly and Travelers' Tales have created a national campaign to help you promote Travelers' Tales titles as the great getaway — for cheap. We'll provide you with marketing materials (signage, T-shirts, buttons, postcards, special discount for inventory order, ad slick, and book displays) to create a window or in-store display during the month of May 1997. The store with the best display wins an overstuffed armchair fully equipped with an airline style seat belt.

We'll also provide you with shelftalker coupon books with space on the front for you to stamp your store name and address. The coupon is redeemable for 10% off the purchase of a Travelers' Tales book. Your customer simply tears off the coupon from the shelftalker, completes the information (name and address) on the back, and gives it to the cashier when they're ready to purchase a book. At the end of each month you send us thecoupons used by your customers, and we'll credit your account. We understand that you might be hesitant to send in coupons with the names and addresses of your customers. The reason for retrieving this information is so you can build your customer list, and so we can send a Travelers' Tales newsletter to your customers informing them of new titles available from their local bookstore — including a reference to your store.

Synopsis:

An essential resource for any woman traveler, Gutsy Women addresses the needs of women travelers of all ages. Whether alone or in groups, voyaging halfway across the world or taking a simple day hike, women can find funny, instructive, and inspiring advice covering everything from travel basics like packing, tipping, and staying within budget to information tailored especially for women: health and hygiene, thwarting unwelcome advances, safety and security, and romance on the road. This fully revised edition incorporates new advice and wisdom on a variety of relevant topics, including first-time travel, traveling alone, the online travel community, mother-daughter trips, traveling with children, resources for older women, and much more. The book is a thoughtful gift for any woman heading out to see the world, or even the nearest town over.
