She�ll Love These Twelve Terrific Travel Books!
great to give or get for the holidays...

West with the Night

This is one of our favorites--a classic women's travelogue about a female pilot flying over Africa in a small plane in the 1930's. Inspiring and beautifully written, this book provides insight into the lives of women in colonial East Africa, and into the life of one very unusual woman.

Turkish Reflections: A Biography of a Place

In 1972 Mary Lee Settle moved to Turkey because "it was warm, it was cheap, and I needed a refuge". She stayed three years, and when she left, she left behind some of her closest friends. In 1989 she returned for the first time, to soothe her sense of loss and to explore the trails blazed by Alexander the Great, Tamerlane, Ghenghis Khan, and Ataturk. Along the way Settle turns off the main roads and wanders into villages where people live as they have for thousands of years; a land where cutting a tree is a crime, where goats are sacrificed to launch state-of-the-art ships and where stones from Greek and Roman temples are used to build Christian churches which have since been converted to mosques. This book is the warm and compassionate story of her travels, and well-worth reading.

kids studying A book for the kiddies...

People

Want your kiddies to grow up to be travellers? Read them this over-sized book before they go to bed. Beautifully illustrated, People teaches children about the differences that exist between the cultures and nations of the world. From the ways we eat, to the games we play and the clothes we wear, this wonderful book celebrates diversity and is guaranteed to stimulate many questions from your little ones. I fell in love with it the first time I read it. Now it has a special spot on my coffee table so that all my visitors (big and small) can enjoy it, too. (Evelyn Hannon)

Travelers� Tales Guides: Italy, true stories of life on the road

medal
Maybe it�s because I�ve just returned from Italy but reading this collection of tales was an absolute pleasure. Each story brought back the wonderful carisma of the country -- the sights, the smells, the sounds. I recommend it highly both for the armchair traveller as well as for the journeywoman setting off to explore Italy for the very first time. From breast-feeding in Rome to shopping in Florence to vacationing with mom, each of the stories offers a perfect peek at Italian life. P.S. Check out the guide at the back of the book. Lots of good, solid info there, too! (Evelyn Hannon)

Women's words on reading...

bookwormEver since I was first read to, then started reading to myself, there has never been a line that I didn't 'hear.' As my eyes followed the sentence, a voice was saying it silently to me. It isn't my mother's voice, or the voice of anybody I can identify, certainly not my own. It is human, but inward, and it is inwardly that I listen to it. It is to me the voice of the story...
