More About the Author

Max Hartshorne has been the editor of the GoNOMAD.com travel website since 2002. Over the past decade, he has had the privilege of working with writers and publishing travel articles about nearly every country in the world.

He has also been a consistent world traveler, writing hundreds of his own travel stories and posting daily blogs from the 10 or more yearly international trips he takes around the world.

Max always tries to get to the heart of a place--asking the local cab drivers, bartenders and people on the street to tell him what's the most important news of the day. He reads the local papers, chooses the local wines, and selects the local specialty from the menu. He's a curious writer and he delves into the nature of each place, with an eye for the details with a goal of showing his readers what it's like there.

He writes a daily blog called Readuponit and is a regular guest on several radio programs sharing stories about his travels. He lives in the farming village South Deerfield in Western Massachusetts and enjoys spending a lot of time with his grandchildren.

My question is this: what do I want to see on my next trip to France? Paris, Bordeaux (it's a UNESCO World Heritage Site now), my ancestral region in the Dordogne, medieval cities like Montpellier and Bergerac, the cathedral at Chartres, or maybe Corsica? My answer is, of course, all of these, and all of these are covered by GoNomad's France Plane Reader. The ebook is a compilation of vibrant travel essays by different travelers, and it features many photos to help tell their stories. It's true that I became aware of this ebook because one of my own essays was selected for it, but my essay aside, the other essays have transformed my dream itineraries already. A characteristic which makes this book stand out from the standard travel guides is, in fact, characters. Many of the writers have profiled some interesting people they've met: breadmakers, cheesemakers, inkeepers, and the man who holds old-school salons in his Paris home. This book is a fantastic guide to what you want to see in France, and what you haven't thought of yet!

This reader is for people who are looking for the real stories, told in descriptive, narrative format, of the people and history and places of France. It's not a guidebook with all the must-see checklists and restaurant/hotel listings, but rather a wonderful collection of stories from around the country, that really evoke a sense of place for the reader. As well as giving insight into places and experiences you may never have known about or considered before, and that many tourists never find . Bon chance!

I read the France Plane Reader before I went to the country and now that I've been I can say the article in the book were spot on. I visited Paris, and the article in the book that inform readers about the city were very helpful. I learned so much about Paris that when I got there I felt as if I had been there a hundred times. Because the book is a compilation of different authors you really get a lot of different perspectives on each part of the country. You have to read it before you head to France!

I've always been enamored with France, having traveled to The Hexagon for over 20 years now and having purchased a home there8 years ago. One of the things that fascinates me about the country, aside from the obvious, is the reaction other travelers have to it and their experiences. This book captures those moments and made me fall in love with the place over and over again. J'adore!
