Item description for The Best Women's Travel Writing 2007: True Stories from Around the World (Travelers' Tales) by Lucy McCauley, Lirio S. Covey, Douglas C. Abrams, Dan G. Jacobs, Meg Casey, Lisa Kron, Frances F. Berdan & Gerard S. Sloyan...

A new collection of true adventure stories by women from around the world shares accounts of spiritual growth, misadventure, romance, and more from such contributors as Frances Mayes, Barbara Kingsolver, and Diane Johnson. Original.

Publishers Description
Since the publication of A Woman's World in 1995, Travelers' Tales has been the recognized leader in women's travel literature. This title presents stimulating, inspiring, and just plain wild adventures from women who have traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new places, peoples, and facets of themselves. The common threads connecting these stories are a woman's perspective; fresh, lively storytelling; and compelling narrative that makes the reader laugh, weep, wish she was there, or be glad she wasn't. Contributors include such luminaries as Frances Mayes, Barbara Kingsolver, and Diane Johnson. Kathleen Spivak's “From the Window,” a bittersweet, beautifully written memoir of lost love in Paris, typifies the book. The points of view and perspectives are both personal and global, and the themes are as eclectic as in all of this series, including stories that encompass spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, high adventure, romance, solo journeys, stories of service to humanity, family travel, and encounters with exotic cuisine.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Best Women's Travel Writing 2007: True Stories from Around the World (Travelers' Tales)?

Pleasantly surprised!  Jul 15, 2008
This roundup of women's travel stories is both entertaining and enthralling. While the anthology includes tales by Frances Mayes and Barbara Kingsolver, the real gems are from the (relatively) unknown writers such as Kayla Allen, Laurie Weed and Kari Bodnarchuk. You'll get inspired, laugh-out-loud and simply shake your head at some of these (miss)adventures.

I read this while on a month-long trip to India and I found these gals to be the perfect traveling companion during my journey!

Joy Tipping
Some of the best travel writing - well, writing, period, that I've read this year lurks among the pages of The Best Women's Travel Writing 2007, edited by Lucy McCauley for the Travelers' Tales series.
This marvelous collection boasts 32 essays from writers you've heard of - Barbara Kingsolver, Frances Mayes - and many more you probably haven't, but will definitely seek in the future.
Witness Kayla Allen's humorous take on "Flirting in Paris."
Trapped in an existential funk, she finds salvation in the glances of a stranger that telegraph, "I have a magnifying glass into your soul. I wish to nibble your ear."
Her heart responds: "We share a beautiful, tortured existence. I'll trifle with your arm hair."
Ms. Allen's fantasies, like the other pieces in this collection, play out as an allegory on the nature of travel itself: the willingness to step outside one's comfort zone, into an abyss that may be, thrillingly, both restorative and terrifying.
