The anthology is a fresh, irreverent look

"The anthology is a fresh, irreverent look at international travel, and delves into areas often glossed over, including experiences with crime, sex, and religious fraud."
‚--San Francisco Chronicle

This compilation of 100 eclectic essays takes readers into the hearts and minds of the authors and the destinations in which their adventures take place. Whether clients are headed to Bhutan or their favorite chair, they will be entertained, enlightened and sometimes shocked by these honest slices of life on the road." --Travel Weekly

The editors had the courage to embark

Roughing It:

"Roughing It: The rough-and-ready contributors to In Search of Adventure: A Wild Travel Anthology, compiled by Bruce Northam and Brad Olsen (CCC Publishing, $17.95) would probably eat their luggage before they'd pack a velvet tea gown or shooting tweeds. If they have luggage at all -- this is the crowd that travels with a toothbrush, a pair of jeans and a passport. They're an eclectic crew of adventurers and hippies; the most far out of them has to be Mur (no other name given), "one of the original intercontinental overland hippies" who renounced his American citizenship "to become an Earth man." Other contributors, including Simon Winchester (The Professor and the Madman) and Tim Cahill (Jaguars Ripped My Flesh), will be more familiar to mainstream readers." --WASHINGTON POST

A great collection of travel stories to read around the campfire

A great collection of travel stories to read around the campfire, in your comfy reclining chair, or in your hotel room in behind the police station (where you may or may not be safe). --WORLD EXPLORER
