Very disappointing. I bought this book thinking it would be similar to her previous book, Far-Flung Hubbell, and it was way too similar.In fact, more than half the book was just a reprint of the same material in the previous book. Surely she's written enough to have put all new content in. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0472114190, Hardcover)

"Sue Hubbell's From Here to There and Back Again is stylish and thought-provoking. As her brother I have long admired her mince pies and her ability to knit her own thermal underwear."
---Bil Gilbert

"The real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life."
---New York Times Book Review

"A latter-day Henry Thoreau with a sense of the absurd."
---Chicago Sun-Times

"Sue Hubbell writes splendidly."
---William Least Heat-Moon

"Prose as clear, languorous and beautiful as honey poured from a jar."
---People

From Here to There and Back Again is the much-anticipated collection of essays on an array of offbeat and engrossing subjects by magazine essayist and nature writer Sue Hubbell, author of A Country Year, Shrinking the Cat, and Waiting for Aphrodite.

Reading Sue Hubbell is like embarking on a journey of discovery with a close friend. Her writing is witty, learned yet unassuming, intensely personal, and pointedly honest as she ranges far and wide on such topics as after-hours truck stops, the country's best pie restaurants, bowling shoes, Costa Rica's blue morpho butterfly, earthquakes, and the honey trade. Several of her pieces take place in Michigan locales as well, including Elvis sightings in Vicksburg and the magicians' convention in Colon. In the end you'll return from these travels refreshed, enlightened-and wiser.
