Editorial Reviews

Henry Aford
Genre-wise, Francisca Matteoli's Adventure Travel Stories falls somewhere between reference and coffee-table. Using color photographs to entice the reader, Matteoli presents 36 ideas for adventures, each centered on a well-known person, book or movie, and each anchored to a specific suggestion for lodgings … you get a passel of juicy conceits and a lot of lush photography. You just read it and go.
