A hip new twist on travel anthologies

These short travel essays from around the globe get to the heart of what the words travel and adventure really mean. In Search of Adventure explores the good, the bad, and the ugly of what traveling the world has to offer. The “Trampled Underfoot” section features tales of woe on the road—the worst of the worst, or making the best of the worst. In “Global Issues & Viewpoints,” authors explore the changing world, oppressive governments, and the homogenizing of world cultures. From warm and inviting to raw and shocking, these nonfiction travel pieces present disparate viewpoints on the diverse world in which we live and leave no emotion untouched.
