    This anthology is great for anyone filled with wanderlust and a desire for adventure. I didn't know what to expect with this book, only that they were stories of women's travels. I love how these tales explored human connections, introduced me to new cultures and ways of life, and helped me see the world through new eyes.

    There was one annoying story about a woman who helped a guy cheat on his girlfriend, then dated him and was surprised when he cheated on her. But she described him in gushing tones while she blamed the other women for being "sluts" and "whores". The stories were interesting but less interesting than other volumes.

    What a great thing is to travel and create bridges. Better, to translate those to stories that might touch lives in every corner of the world. Invited to keep reading these books. P.S. I bought this book as second hand. Surprised to realize its autographed 😊

    This collection of 30 travel essays written by women will entertain and enlighten both the adventurer and the arm-chair enthusiast. The stories range from searching for frogs in southern Louisiana to chasing tornadoes in Oklahoma to a Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico with a mother and her young son. Each author invites the reader to not just visit a place, but to see it through the lens of the people and the local culture, accompanying the writer on her own emotional journey.

Each author invites the reader to not just visit a place, but to see it through the lens of the people and the local culture, accompanying the writer on her own emotional journey. I enjoyed Blair Braverman's "Rangefinder Girl" as she trekked through Namibia studying black rhinos. Fearful at the beginning, she comes to appreciate the land and the creatures that occupy it, calmly flicking a scorpion from her leg on the last night. I also liked Holly Morris's "The Risky Path," a recounting of her fear of snakes and an effort to overcome it while in Bangladesh. She quotes Martin Luther King Jr., "Salvation is being on the right road, not having reached a destination." Each of these stories is a possible road, traversed by other women, but in the sharing perhaps they will spur you toward your own.

    There's no way I could ever travel enough, so I satisfy that itch by reading travel essays. I'm the rare person who really does want to see your vacation pictures. The Travelers Tales series never fail to satisfy and this one does its job. very enjoyable.
