(4 / 5 stars)


Two dozen pithy tales take the reader on different adventures around our globe. Written by travel correspondents, each with a different personality, one gains a kaleidoscopic view of the world.

These stories bring out the humorous in encounters with the unfamiliar, show the spirit of adventure that impels the traveler to confront dangers while exploring different cultures, and reveals how understanding broadens with exposure to unknown challenges. These passages are quick reads; some stories are more compelling in that they take the reader into the visited territory, while others reflect more of the author’s self-image.” — Reviewed by Aron Row, San Francisco Book Review
