Jumping into the hot topic of green travel, author and sustainable design consultant Fuad-Luke (EcoDesign: The Sourcebook) provides an overview of eco-travel, from exactly what it is to destination and some gear information. The bulk of the book is devoted to destinations having resorts and hotels, which are divided into urban, nature, adventure, leisure, and culture sections. One-page overviews of the destinations focus on how the lodge or resort uses eco-architecture and environmental management systems and benefits the local culture and environment. Descriptions are complemented with colorful and alluring photographs. Unlike other titles, such as Green Travel, from Fodor's, destinations are not reviewed or rated here. Contact information and price ranges are in the resource section in the back of the book and not on the destination page, which may be a hindrance to those seeking one-stop information, especially the budget conscious. Still, this is a good addition to the eco-travel literature. Recommended for all libraries with travel collections.
