She introduces us to her family and traveling companions as she takes her children whitewater rafting in West Virginia, teaches English as a foreign language in Ghana and walks the paths of history in Israel. "Life's Journey" blends storytelling and travel writing to give us a look at one American woman's life through her travels.
