Overview

The third printing of the most highly regarded anthology published by New Rivers Press is the occasion for a new edition.

The writers include Diane Glancy, Patricia Hampl, and Nancy Raeburn. Whether the writing is of "A Walk on Hadrian's Wall", or a "Return to Warsaw", the portraits drawn are engaging, refreshing and unique. Publishers Weekly has said: "The nearly 50 short pieces of travel writing that comprise this volume display such a wealth of perspectives and explore such a variety of locales that the book is a splendid adventure in itself".
