Item description for A Woman's Europe: True Stories (Travelers' Tales) by Marybeth Bond & Mary Morris...
A Woman's Europe is a collection of inspiring and entertaining true stories by women about their travels throughout the Continent. Europe has always drawn Americans in part because so many of their ancestors emigrated from there. But Europe also has an irresistibly romantic appeal. It's a place of old-world elegance, with centuries of history, rich art and architecture. It is this romantic ideal that pulls more travelers to Europe than Asia or elsewhere, and that appeals to women in particular. These stories highlight women discovering peculiarly European pleasures --- the romantic realities of a gondolier's life on a ride through the Venice canals; meeting a comforting Swiss matron when a village visit becomes lonely and confusing; the meaning behind rituals like picking olives or learning flamenco; and more.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Woman's Europe: True Stories (Travelers' Tales)?
A varied, but excellent collection Aug 28, 2004
This is a wonderful collection of short pieces by women of talent. Not every piece is great literature, but on finishing it I felt I had made new friends.
There are some familiar names who are always reliable or at least interesting. There are new talents as well. I greatly enjoyed Portrait of the Artist as a Bold Man by a charming new author with a bright future.
This is a perfect book for the corner table to read while you have 5 or 10 minutes.
