Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Family Travel: The Farther You Go, the Closer You Get, from the critically acclaimed Travelers' Tales series, is a collection of 45 moving essays about traversing the globe with loved ones. Edited by Laura Manske, the book is a great read for any parent, but you don't have to have children to appreciate the humor, warmth, and candor of these topnotch writers' accounts of their experiences on the road. James O'Reilly talks of the travails of traipsing around France for several months with three small children in tow, Jane Meyers writes of taking a Mediterranean vacation with her long-ago-divorced husband for the sake of their two grown children, and Andre Aciman--who grew up in the seaside town of Alexandria, Egypt--learns you can't necessarily go home again. Kuki Gallmann, Michael Crichton, Eddy L. Harris, and comedian Paul Reiser (in an amusing bit on flying with an infant) are also featured. Though these writers don't gloss over less-than-merry journeys, they ultimately discover that indeed, the farther you go, the closer you get. --Jill Fergus

By A Customer on October 19, 1999
Format: Paperback
As a long-time travel editor and first-time mother-to-be, I found this book to be a tremendous relief--it's possible, I've discovered, to actually have a wonderful time traveling as a family. Rather than dread what I'd assumed was the obligatory annual trip to Florida's theme parks, I'm now anticipating taking my child to all the wonderful parts of the world I've visited and want to return to, as well as those I've only read about. This book has been a true inspiration and, during these last weeks when I actually can't get on a plane, a light at the end of the tunnel!

Hearing that I was planning a vacation which included extensive travel, a friend gave me this delightful book. As I prepared for my trip, I read the articles which dealt with places I'd visit. Since returning home, I've read most of the other pieces. I assure you that you need not be traveling with family to enjoy these 'Family Travel' adventures.

I loved this book, especially The Cheese Sandwich That Changed My Life. What a wonderful story! There is something for everyone in this collection. I've already bought a couple copies as gifts for family and friends.
