Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Freelance writer Noland has written a humorous and educational travel book about the new craze in adventure travel. The adventures are recounted in a personal, short-story format. From paddle rafting in Alaska to canoeing in Zimbabwe, Noland works his way around the world, continent by continent. At the end of each story, he describes the outfitters that offer the trip, what to expect, recommended reading, and challenge levels: a rating system of mental and physical challenge levels that allows the reader to judge which trips may be either too difficult or not challenging enough. Noland covers all types of sports, from walking and rafting to mountain biking. Enjoyable, and informative; for public libraries.Stephanie Papa, Balti more Cty. Circuit Court Law Lib., Md.

YA--Here are 40 adventure-travel trips offered by English-speaking outfitters, with something for everyone. They range from the downright dangerous (to the North Pole by dogsled), to the almost leisurely (exploring the Turkish coast by boat). Noland tells of his own experiences in each locale in a few engaging, pithy pages that are followed by logistical details of each outfitter's tour; e.g., what kind of weather to expect, perils, and challenges. A recommendation of one or two excellent books to prepare travelers is followed by phone numbers and fees for each outfitter and a rating of the trip's physical, mental, and skill levels on a scale from one to five. Almost every continent (not Australia), mode of transportation, and degree of difficulty are widely covered in this entertaining book. Noland explains the trips he didn't take himself by telling the often hair-raising adventures of another, sometimes long-ago, traveler through that spot. Travelers and adventure-book lovers will enjoy this offering. Even sedentary readers will find themselves wanting to find these spots on a map.Judy McAloon, Potomac Library, Prince William County, VA
