Overview

See the world through the eyes of some of the most celebrated and admired people of our time in this engaging new travel book. Award-winning author and National Geographic Traveler writer Jerry Camarillo Dunn takes you on a remarkable journey with such amazing and diverse figures as Sandra Day O’Connor and the Dalai Lama, actors Robin Williams and Morgan Freeman, astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Sally Ride, explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau, real estate mogul Donald Trump, entertainer Jerry Seinfeld, food guru Alice Waters, and author Tony Hillerman. His simple question to these people: What is your favorite travel discovery? The answers are both surprising and engaging—ranging from Bali Indonesia to a well-used bench at San Francisco’s Crissy Field, from the Hopi Mesas in Arizona to the Old City of Jerusalem. In page after page, celebrated contributors describe the special appeal of each place—be it the amazing beauty, or the character of the people, or simply the hushed joy of solitude.

To enhance the stories further, Dunn scoured the files of National Geographic to create sidebars full of intriguing information about each place—and even steers you to websites that tell how you can visit them yourself. But the real allure is the entertaining narrative, inviting readers to experience the excitement of traveling with these celebrated personalities to their favorite places on Earth.

    more from this reviewer

    My Favorite Place on Earth is interesting reading.

    This is a book for rainy day browsing: each chapter is engagingly and pleasantly presented, revealing ideal places uniquely chosen by famous people. I purchased it for a school library and because I like the people who reported chapter by chapter. I don't travel much, so I thought these impressions from those who do would be valuable. I especially liked James Taylor's comments.
