A fantastic and eclectic mix of travel tales from partying in Paris with P. Diddy to kayaking to Timbuktu in the wilds of Africa, these stories touch the core of why we travel. A great read for travelers and those who dream of travel alike. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618118829, Paperback)

Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundred of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to the twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind.
More and more readers are discovering the pleasures of armchair travel through the hugely successful Best American Travel Writing, now in its fourth adventurous year. Journey through the 2003 volume from Route 66 to the Arctic; go deep into Poland's Tatra Mountains and through the wildest jungle in Congo. Selections this year are from equally far-flung sources, including Outside, Food & Wine, National Geographic Adventure, Potpourri, and The New Yorker.

"Travelers whose interest goes beyond the latest luxury hotel or high-end cruise line will adore this collection, since most of its essays concern unorthodox voyages. None come from travel magazines, although several were published by adventure magazines Outside and National Geographic Explorer"--Publishers Weekly.… (more)
