Item description for Encounters in My Travels: Thoughts Along the Way (Value Inquiry Book Series 174) by Dixie Lee Harris...
This book details Harris's travels throughout the globe among common people through sixty-seven countries over twelve years. She stayed in a harem, wore a burqa, and slept on a sidewalk through the biggest battle in the Algerian War! Questions evoke critical reading and philosophical thought, and the book includes a bibliography of suggestions for further reading. Lived Values, Valued Lives (LVVL) is a series of explorations, representing real and fictionalized biographies, autobiographies, and significant fragments of lives, concerning how a person's values help inform a person's life, how that life expresses those values, and the principled ways in which intelligent individuals deal with life's vagaries. Each volume contains discussion questions and a bibliography of readings that make LVVL appropriate for courses exploring values clarification, career exploration, or contemporary cultural issues.

Beautifully written, depth of soul, awesome and inspiring are words that immediately come to mind. I love the emotion and enthusiasm that vibrates throughout the book. It was a wonderful experience for me to travel vicariously with the author. --Ruth Raynor Sirota
