Synopsis:

Whether a world-traveler or an armchair enthusiast, this remarkable collection delights the reader with tales from such varied locales as Prague, India, Tibet, Cuba, and Antarctica. From each piece emerges a distinct and individual voice, resulting in an astounding array of diverse perspectives and an exceptional range of information. Not just tales of vacationing, these articles highlight the specificity of experience that characterized the original A Woman's World — from silversmithing in Niger to learning flamenco in Spain to visiting a queen in Nepal. What's more, A Woman's World Again seeks to bring these extraordinary experiences to a female audience of travelers and non-travelers alike. In this spirit, these pieces are written predominantly by female adventurers who can offer insight as to the particularities of a woman's experiences abroad.
