Item description for A Woman's Asia: True Stories (Travelers' Tales) by Marybeth Bond...
Asia has an exotic appeal for many Westerners --- from its rich and ancient civilization, spirituality, and mysticism, to its high mountain peaks, tropical backwaters, and beautiful Taj Mahal. In this new century especially, women are traveling to Asia in response to a spiritual and emotional draw to the continent. Women are seeking adventure, connection, and a deeper understanding of the world and its inhabitants, and no place offers a more enticing opportunity to find this.
In this inspiring collection, readers explore the legend of Kuan Yin, the Chinese goddess of compassion; encounter the plight of poor women in rural India; discover their own cultural space through bathing with elephants in India; bridge the chasm dividing West and East through teaching English in Laos; confront their moral choices over dinner in Bangkok; dance with the ghost of Genghis Khan in Mongolia; come of age in Bali; and much more.
