Book News Annotation:

This collection contains 35 stories by women travel writers who tell about their experiences in countries from Mexico to Papa New Guinea, emphasizing themes of serendipity, spiritual growth, adventure, romance, exoticism, and others. McCauley writes travel essays and is editor of other Travelers' Tales Anthologies. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Women have been writing about their travels for generations, putting a uniquely feminine slant on life on the road and the people and places they encounter along the way. The third entry in Travelers Tales acclaimed annual series, The Best Women's Travel Writing 2008 presents exciting, uplifting, and unforgettable adventures from women who have traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new people, places, and facets of themselves. Combining lively storytelling and compelling narrative with a woman's perspective, the stories — most published here for the first time — make the reader laugh, cry, wish she were there, or be glad she wasnt. Eclectic themes including solo journeys, family travel, romance, spiritual growth, strange foods, and even stranger people, inspire women to plan their next great journeys.
