Synopsis:

Since publishing the original edition of A Womans World in 1995, Travelers Tales has been the recognized national leader in womens travel literature, and with the launch of the annual series The Best Travel Writing in 2004, the obvious next step was an annual collection of the best womens travel writing of the year. This title is the tenth in that series — The Best Womens Travel Writing — presenting stimulating, inspiring, and uplifting 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 female perspective and fresh, compelling storytelling to make the reader laugh, weep, wish she were there, or be glad she wasnt. The points of view and perspectives are global, and the themes are as eclectic as in all of our books, 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.
