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.

The Bust Guide to the New Girl Order

Bury Me Standing

Brainy but never arrogant reporter Isabel Fonseca bears witness to the lives of the Gypsies — or Roma — who are among the least understood people on earth, and whose diaspora numbers 12 million.

"Erudite, beautifully written… keenly observed and rich in unexpected exoticism.” - The New York Times

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.

Pilgrimage to India

After 25 years away, writer and activist Pramila Jayapal returned to India in 1995 and spent two years reacquainting herself with the place where she was born and raised. Pilgrimage to India: A Woman Revisits Her Homeland captures some of her impressions and experiences as she confronts the culture that both enchants and enrages her. A recommended read for anyone who liked Adventure Divas’ India: Holy Cow.
