From New York to Nigeria, Iceland to Uzbekistan, and many wonderful places in between, the stories in this inspiring collection take us on journeys that provide the perfect antidote for today's climate of fear and international discord. The world may be changing, but these writers prove that it's still ours to explore.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Adult/High School
The editors of A Woman Alone (Seal, 2001) have again collected women's travel narratives. Most of the essays involve specific trips: Susan Richardson in Iceland, following the steps of a 10th-century Viking woman; Alexia Brue spending a post-college summer in Provence working in a hotel laundry; Alison Culliford's pre-wedding trip to Labrador on an "icebreaker"; Gail Hudson taking her 13-year-old daughter to Greece and recalling her own trip there as a teen. One of the best pieces, by Julianne Balmain, is simply about the pleasures of traveling alone. She talks about places as companions and about the importance of anchoring solo days with "small, well-spaced obligations." It's great advice for any solo traveler, male or female. Many of the essays deal specifically with the issues women face: cultural expectations in different countries, safety, the empowerment of travel. This book will appeal to armchair travelers, and to fans of novels like Maureen Johnson's 13 Little Blue Envelopes (HarperCollins, 2005).
