Abstract:

"Way back in the '90s, readers and critics alike loved the stories of women travelers in A Woman's World, which won a Lowell Thomas Gold Medal for Best Travel Book. Twelve years later, best-selling author and editor Marybeth Bond continues to champion women's travel in A Woman's World Again with thirty-three remarkable journeys ranging from the middle of nowhere to middle America. Whether they are exploring identity in Ireland, sharing tea with a carpet seller in Turkey, or apprenticing with the silversmiths of Niger, these women will inspire you to create your own adventures." "Learn the samba and keep the rhythm in Brazil; reach the summit of Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; get the makeover of your life from the women of the Dominican Republic; discover the appeal of the Virgin Mary in Mexico; encounter an alternative view of death and dying in India; feel the hunger pangs of Hemingway while studying in Paris; flirt and get that warm fuzzy feeling on a Sicilian farm; and much more."--BOOK JACKET.
