On your next trip or on your bedside table, Travel Stories From Around the Globe will make a dreamer of you. Twenty-three juried stories by San Francisco's Bay Area travel writers are portals to fascinating cities, villages and countries, to famous and obscure destinations, on dangerous journeys, funny trips, romantic encounters, on trains, planes, camels and kayaks, to some familiar places and to some you’ve never imagined.
From the introduction by Don George, Editor-at-Large for National Geographic Traveler: " . . we ride the Orient Express and sail a luxury expedition ship, walk Alaska's Chilkoot trail, explore Maya caves in Guatemala, soak iln Japanese hot mud baths . . absorb unforgettable stories of courage and compassion."
"The pieces in this anthology offer surprise, serendipity, connection, and personal transformation ... [proving] that the Bay Area is home to so many talented storytellers."
— Julia Cosgrove, Editor-in-Chief, AFAR
"Each story zooms in on an unpredictable experience—a journey within a journey— that reveals more about a place than you'd ever learn from a guidebook."
— Janet Fullwood, Travel Editor of the Sacramento Bee for 21 years
