These short travel essays from around the globe get to the heart of what the words travel and adventure really mean. In Search of Adventure explores the good, the bad, and the ugly of what travelling the world has to offer. The "Trampled Underfoot" section features tales of woe on the road -- the worst of the worst, or making the best of the worst. In "Global Issues & Viewpoints," authors explore the changing world, oppressive governments, and the homogenising of world cultures. From warm and inviting to raw and shocking, these non-fiction travel pieces present disparate viewpoints on the diverse world in which we live and leave no emotion untouched.

How in the heck can I be the only person out of 227,672 members to own this? I don't understand you people. THis book is full of colorful far out there scenarios that almost read as fiction. And then I remember that it really did happen to someone. I definitely need to get out more. Read full review
