Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"Across 30 years and seven continents, Watson, the Minneapolis Star Tribune's first travel editor and self-identified "tourist in life", takes the reader to the road with ease. Watson is a traveler who is meant for writing. Kick back and listen as she shares life stories, reflections, and insights on cultures the world over. Stand in line for a witch doctor's cleansing in Mexico City's Sonora Market; have a closer look at polar bears in Churchill, Manitoba; participate in a community cleanup project in Winslow, Arizona; join hikers and see Machu Picchu, the lost city of the Andes. Here are romantic cities, great rivers, and trips on the wild side, Lebanon, Minnesota, and Nepal in one rich volume. The essays that make up this anthology fit every itinerary - perfectly! Travel readers in the know have probably already made Watson's acquaintance. For those who haven't, this is first-class travel reading at its best. "
