Item description for The Best Women's Travel Writing 2005: True Stories from Around the World by Lucy McCauley...

The common threads connecting the stories in this collection are a woman's perspective; fresh, lively storytelling; and compelling narrative that makes readers laugh, cry, wish they were there, or be grateful that they weren't. These stories are thematically eclectic and cover a wide range of topics, including spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, high adventure, romance, solo journeys, service to humanity, family travel, and exotic cuisine.

In this collection, armchair travelers discover the sex appeal of a big butt in Senegal; become a door-to-door art saleswoman in Madrid and uncover Spanish generosity; learn what it means to serve in Mother Teresa's mission in Calcutta; discover a universe of meaning in a simple Parisian restaurant; watch a person transform in a classroom in Laos; learn the secret of worry beads in Greece; go on a pilgrimage with self-flagellating masses in India; and much more.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Best Women's Travel Writing 2005: True Stories from Around the World?

Okay  Feb 22, 2008
I usually love these women's travel tales. When I find a story I enjoy I often buy the book or look for more written by the author. Only one or two stories sparked me to look for more. There are way too many "navel gazing" stories in this book. I'm not sorry I read it, but am not sure I'll read any of the later books.
a great read and a good gift for anyone who travels or wishes they could  Dec 25, 2007
Give it to your friends as it takes you away on so many different travels.
The Road Too Often Traveled  Nov 25, 2005
I really wanted this to be a 5-star book. It's not. It's a wonderful concept, but too many of the stories have too many shared elements. Because of that, they don't shine in the way stories in an collection must.

I hope the publisher will continue its commitment to publishing women's travel stories, but with a different mix of writers and adventures.
first class tales  Oct 1, 2005
Rebeccasreads highly recommends THE BEST WOMEN'S TRAVEL WRITING 2005 from Travelers' Tales.

Like the proverbial box of chocolates, you never quite know what you'll be getting as you set out with these 30 intrepid travelers, old & young, naive & world-weary as they seek adventure & find something else, find healing & learn something dangerous. All are strangers in strange lands, going through rocky relationships & encountering clashing cultures.

So, pack your bag & grab your hat & get ready to see the world through the eyes & relationships of these womanly travelers -- & while not all are first class writers, each has a fascinating tale to tell.
