Part travelogue, part historical evocation, part personal quest, and part reflection on the joys and perils of passage, "An Unexpected Light" is a remarkable, poignant book about Afghanistan, and a heartfelt reflection on the experience of travel itself. --From the publisher

"This Cold Heaven : Seven Seasons in Greenland" Gretel Ehrlich Our price: $19.25 | You save: $8.25
...available here.
From the acclaimed chronicler of open spaces comes a stunning and lyrical evocation of a practically unknown place and people.

...available here.
This year's "Best American Travel Writing" is a far-flung collection chosen by travel writer extraordinaire Paul Theroux, who has selected pieces about "the spell in the wilderness, the letter home from foreign parts, the dangerous adventure, the sentimental journey, the exposé, the shocking revelation, the eyewitness report, the ordeal, the quest...," and concludes that "Travel is an attitude, a state of mind."



"This Cold Heaven : Seven Seasons in Greenland" Gretel Ehrlich Our price: $19.25 | You save: $8.25
...available here.
The glaciers are rivers, the sky is struck solid, the water is ink, the mountains are lights that go on and off. Sometimes I lie in my sleeping bag and recite a line from a Robert Lowell poem over and over: "Any clear thing that blinds us with surprise." BESTSELLING TRAVEL MEMOIRS
