A WOMAN'S WORLD:
True Stories of World Travel

Editor: Marybeth Bond

Women travel differently than men. Women look for different things, their goals and styles are different, and what they take from their travels is different. And while more and more women of all ages and means are taking to the road, the lion's share of travel books are by men and are geared to men and their view of our small blue universe. But no matter how egalitarian the writer, there are things missing for the woman traveller.

A Woman's World is a slice from the female side of the travel story. In it, Bond has brought together more than fifty contemporary voices in which women tell their tales, offer pearls of advice and warning, and share their dreams and ambitions with fellow travellers. Some are veteran writers, many are not, and some have never been published before. The stories come from the young and old, the novice traveller and the veteran, from women travelling alone, as part of a couple, or part of a group, and all have unforgettable experiences to share.

This award-winning collection is about more than just travel. It is about what it means to be a woman in the world today, the rewards of risk taking, learning, loving, and taking steps toward making dreams real. The stories span the continents, cross the generations, and are written by every kind of traveller, from novice to adventurer. They will move you out of your armchair, take you along paths of memory, and fill you with the spirit of adventure.

Notable authors include: Gretel Ehrlich, Robyn Davidson, Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, Helen Thayer, and Mary Morris.
