Overview

"Draw[s] you into the beauty of being alive in a mysterious world. . . . Rich with exotic places, stories, and wisdom." —Sue Monk Kidd, author, The Mermaid Chair and The Secret Life of Bees

Living life as fully on the road as at home is celebrated in this book that ponders the people who mastered the art of moving about. Passages of classic travel writing by Isak Dinesen, Ernest Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, and Henry Miller are woven through accounts of the author's own globetrotting adventures. A collection of travel hints, inspirational ideas, and suggestions for journal-keeping fill chapters entitled "Take More Risks," "Buck Convention," "Slow Down and Live in the Moment," and "Find Your Wild Side." Color photographs and an enticing list of travel books for further reading are also included.
