Good for all the usual stuff and the best all around, plus it’ll give you an overview of the mainland and other islands.

Rough Guide Crete

A decent mix of history and useful travel information (tho’ targeting a slightly older audience).

A Journey of One’s Own

Okay, this is the practical one. Cross-cultural encounters and self-discovery from a wide array of women are interwoven with detailed advice on matters such as how to deal with sexual harassment, stay healthy, be safe, and avoid theft. Well written and organized for easy accessibility, A Journey of One’s Own is both useful and inspiring.

Go Girl!

Spiced with information and advice, this guide for African-Americans and African-Canadians features tales from a wide array of authors, depicting travel as fun, as pure escape and relaxation; as spiritual quest and an opportunity for growth; and as mind-expanding, life-changing experience. Contributors include Maya Angelou, Jill Nelson, Alice Walker, Jamaica Kincaid, and others.

Adventures In Good Company

Covers bicycling, canoeing, fishing, surfing, sailing, rock climbing, dog sledding, skiing, trekking, etc. — as well as leadership programs, cultural exchange opportunities, and spiritual journeys. Issues particular to group travel (how to choose a company, what to expect from a guide, insurance, safety, etc.) are fully explored. More than 100 companies worldwide are profiled.
