Dust in My Pack is a beautifully imagined and implemented work. Nancy O’Hare’s voice and attention to detail are just what I want in a travel log. The cover art is wistful and beckons the inner adventurer. O'Hare has chosen locations that are not particularly "touristy" so the flavor of the culture and surroundings is all the more authentic for not having been adjusted to suit the traveler. That is not to say that the locations were not welcoming of travelers, just that travelers have not corrupted the experience to be had. I doubt that I will ever get the opportunity to travel to Cambodia to take a boat ride to Stung Proat, surrounded by grey monkeys and great black and white birds with massive wingspans; nor will I probably ever snow shoe in Switzerland, but O’Hare did, and she was kind enough to take me along. Dust in My Pack is a treasure for any person who lives with unrequited wanderlust. I hope O’Hare continues her adventures and continues taking me along, because there are so many more places I want to go.
From Antarctica to Zimbabwe and mostly everything in between, Nancy O’Hara went out of the way to find places less traveled, making this personal account a fascinating read. As many adventures were on budget oriented outfitters or tour-groups,
The adventures the author describes are not for the faint at heart or the elderly. Many tours she took were with 20-29-year old’s and often under quite primitive conditions. As she writes ‘These treks can throw a lot at you, scrunch you up and try to toss you down. After five days of dodging swamps or steady inclines, finding energy to push on can be hard.’ For that matter, ‘Dust in my Pack’ will particularly please a younger adventurer, or any traveler that is young at heart. Having said that, I also believe that “Dust in my Pack’ can be a good read about exceptional places for an armchair traveler.
