I guess these people just cannot possibly help themselves from the anti-Trump ranting. It’s just so BORING! Give it up! Stop infecting everything with politics! We need a break already.
I’m just disappointed and regretting spending money on this book.
This is by far the most engaging, diverse, and refreshing group of travel writing essays I've seen in one collection.
It feels like the beginning of a changing of the guard from the smothering, dominant perspective of white, male, privileged travellers. Halle-freaking-lujah and Amen, Cheryl Strayed. Well chosen!
Thank you for putting this together. I will be teaching from it, and recommending it to others, for years to come.
In this time of Covid, with my own travels on hold, I was looking for interesting far off tales. This is a pretty dark and not fun book.
