Frances Mayes nd Letty Cottin Pogrebin are among the traveling women who tell stories -- funny, touching, inspiring -- about journeys ranging from Tunisia to Papua New Guinea (and many more-familiar spots, such as France, Italy, and Mexico). Highly entertaining.
A diverse and gripping series of stories. These memorable vignettes of women's journeys around the planet will inspire readers to their own adventures. = Arlene Blum, author of Annapurna: A Woman's Place
"Reading this book is dangerous. You'll quit your job. You'll cash in your savings - or take out a loan. At the very least, you'll ache to follow in the footsteps of these fine writers on their exciting travels." - Lucy Jane Bledsoe, author of Working Parts.
Contains writing by Frances Mayes, Anne Lamott, Mary Morris, Kathleen Meyer, and others.
