Best Travel Writing
True Strories From Around The World
Zany sojourns from all corners of the globe - The Best Travel Writing 2010 is the seventh volume in the annual Travelers' Tales series launched in 2004 to celebrate the world’s best travel writing—from Nobel Prize winners to emerging new writers. These 29 stories cover the globe, from exploring the mysteries of superstition in Cameroon to taking adopted children to Korea on a Homeland Tour to traveling solo in Panama's forbidding Darien jungle. The points of view and perspectives are global, and themes encompass high adventure, spiritual growth, romance, hilarity and misadventure, service to humanity, and encounters with exotic cuisine.
"Travelers’ Tales has thrived by seizing on our perpetual fascination for armchair traveling, including this annual roundup of delightful (and sometimes dreadful) wayfaring adventures from all corners of the globe."
The Washington Post
"Here are intimate revelations, mind-changing pilgrimages, and body-challenging peregrinations. And there’s enough to keep one happily reading until the next edition."
San Francisco Chronicle
"The Best Travel Writing is a globetrotter’s dream. Some tales are inspiring, some disturbing or disheartening, many sobering. But at the heart of each one lies the most crucial element – a cracking good story told with style, wit and grace."
