From Library Journal
This is not, strictly speaking, a travel book but a collection of articles, most of them previously published in various magazines, on a variety of subjects. The author places the articles into five categories: The Unnatural World, Tooth and Claw, The Natural World, Other People's Lives, and Risk. Cahill, author of Jaguars Ripped My Flesh ( LJ 10/1/87) and A Wolverine Is Eating My Leg ( LJ 2/15/89), has traveled around the world on assignment, covering a wide range of unusual events such as firewalking, caving, etc. He writes with a keen sense of humor, but with a serious and informed attitude. The reader won't find tips on hotels, food, or transportation but a rich and varied tour of interesting and unusual places and events. Recommended for all travel collections.- George M. Jenks, Bucknell Univ., Lewisburg, Pa.
