Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'A dazzling different kind of travel book...It is a rare experience to share the very rich and thoughtful hours of Emily Hiestand.'--Washington Post — 'If one must travel, one should do it with the eyes of a child, the mind of an ecologist, the heart of a pagan, and the words of a poet.

Travels in Orkney, Belize, the Everglades, and Greece. "A tour de force of personal narrative. . . . Astonishingly fluid and keenly observant." --The Boston Globe
