We’ve all had loved ones foment our fears, like the voices in Elizabeth O’Donnell’s, “Breaking in the Shoes of a Braver Woman,” but we find as we read on that nothing is as frightening or impossible as it seems from the outside. Stories like “Down the Napo River,” and “Day One Hundred and Twenty-Two” lift a curtain and reveal the glimmering mysteries to be discovered on a solo journey. First-hand accounts such “Journalist: Don’t Shoot” and “Gunfire at Night” confront harsh realities and demonstrate how to stand strong in the face of danger, while “Witness to a Crime” provides in depth social reflection. Each tale has its own significant brand of wisdom learned through experience, and the collection is brought to a poetic close by Megan Bennay who reminds us all why traveling alone is the greatest gift you can give yourself.
After 8 years living in Colombia and raising my family here, the adventures shared by these incredible women remind me to step outside my comfort zone and embrace the possibilities that are waiting beyond the mountainous horizon of my home in Bogotá. I am profoundly grateful for the these women who speak up and share their vision of this gorgeous continent.
