What an exciting interesting book. It is filled with information and antedotes on places I don't know about you but I will never in my wildest dreams travel to. But the armchair traveler will love it and the informed citizen will learn more on the political climate. Hooray for Robert Pelton. Long may he travel. Joalice
Fascinating book chock-full of adventures to be had and places to go. It's amazing how dangerous the world was pre 9/11. This book will tell you how to stay alive in these places, inside scoops on war zones, high energy adventure spots and extreme sports and much more.
This is more than just a reference book, it is fascinating reading.
