Book Description

The Townsend 11 collective of award-winning writers is back again with eleven true stories that will delight, entertain, amuse, and inspire readers of all ages.

If you like the essays published in Travelers’ Tales, Lonely Planet, and other creative nonfiction anthologies, you’ll love Townsend 11’s second volume, No Set Boundaries.

Townsend 11′s authors are: Jennifer Baljko, Carol Beddo, Jacqueline Collins, John Dalton, Larry Habegger, Dana Hill, Barbara Robertson, Bonnie Smetts, Jacqueline Yau, Bill Zarchy, and Y.J. Zhu.

The first volume, No Fixed Destination, took readers from China to Croatia and beyond with heartfelt memoirs, stories of romance, and lessons learned. The second volume moves from reflection to action. Witness an early-19th-century Catalan tradition practiced in modern Barcelona that terrifies and thrills Jennifer Baljko. Follow Bonnie Smetts in Rome as she discovers how to shop the Italian way. Shiver with Dana Hill on a cold beach in England. Watch Carol Beddo find the courage to deal with bureaucratic prejudice aimed at a young woman in Ethiopia. Walk with backpacker Y.J. Zhu along a frightening, war-ravaged Cambodian road into hidden beauty in Angkor Wat. Rest awhile with Jacqueline Collins in a special California garden. And, slide through time with editor Larry Habegger as he drifts into an Impressionist painting on a canal in France.

Then prepare to laugh. In his hilarious “Warped Willie,” Bill Zarchy deals with his once-proud, straight zucchini that morphed into a crookneck squash. Barbara Robertson’s attempt to help lost travelers becomes a comedy of misdirection.

Next, John Dalton debates the risks and rewards of mountain biking after a misadventure on “Brokeleg Mountain,” while Jacqueline Yau goes to India to fulfill a travel fantasy in a Rajasthani city. “Jaisalmer, seduce me,” she writes, “I’m ready.”

Whether you want to tickle your imagination, laugh out loud, or come along on an adventure, No Set Boundaries has a story for you. For more information, visit townsend11.com.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting the inside track on travel and adventure November 13, 2011

I just recently read a chapter from No Set Boundaries and I have to say, I can't wait to see what else is in store. Jennifer Baljko's piece on the castle builders of Spain got my attention and kept it in her experience of watching this spanish tradition of endurance, skill, and yogi-like focus. It's a must read and I look forward to it's future volumes to come available.

Fairly typical travel writing anthology. Read it a month ago, I enjoyed it, but nothing really stands out. Some good, some okay.

Once again, y'all managed to write GREAT stories that are fun and easy to read. I really enjoyed reading Bill Zarchy's "Warped Willie" because it was so funny and yet, as a man, I could identify with issues of problems with "Willie." I encourage the Townsend 11 to keep producing these real life stories.
