Clean Breaks: 500 new ways to see the world

by Jeremy Smith, Richard Hammond

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smith (green travel correspondent, The Guardian) and Hammond, former editor of theEcologist Magazine, list 500 obscure and adventurous trips, spanning six continents, that enhance environmental causes and charity. The authors define a clean break as "an inspirational vacation that benefits you, local communities and the planet." The book is divided geographically into 14 regions and highlights traveling by horseback, boat, and bicycle as well as hitchhiking, kick sledding, and bog walking. The journeys include birding in South Africa, meeting the Masai in Tanzania, whale- and dolphin-watching in Spain, boating up the Mekong in Laos, and exploring the music world of Harlem. With numerous full-color photographs and offbeat suggestions relating to, e.g., green festivals and volunteering, this guide also includes helpful appendixes with contact information for transport, ticketing agents, accommodations, food and drink, and activities. The book has indexes by country and theme, but a general index would have been helpful. VERDICT A recommended guide for the latest information on ecotourism.—Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svcs., Boulder, CO
