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.

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.


"A very impressive collection of travel pieces by women who took to the byways — road, river, and trail — with only themselves as company. Rogers has gathered here almost two dozen pieces that sparkle with insight into what it means to solo in the great outdoors… Crackingly good writing throughout, a heady stew rich with savory chunks of information for those, women or men, wishing to go it alone.” -Kirkus Reviews
