NEW & COMING SOON

"A River's Tale : A Year on the Mekong" Edward A. Gargan Our price: $18.86 | You save: $8.09
...available here.
A chronicle of a year-long journey along the nearly 3,000 miles of the Mekong River as it descends from the Tibetan plateau through southern Asia, "A River's Tale" is a vivid look at the disparate peoples settled the length of the river's path. As the living is often hard on the river, so too is the journey for author Edward Gargan, a former New York Times correspondent in Asia: he finds himself sleeping on floors, stranded on rutted highways, and arguing with fickle boatmen over the course of his travels. --From Publishers Weekly

...available here.
Organized by state, Suzanne Loebl's "America's Art Museums: A Traveler's Guide to Great Collections Large and Small" covers everything from Arizona's Fleischer Museum, specializing in the California School of American Impressionism, and Harvard's Arthur M. Sackler Museum, featuring Asian art, to the Studio Museum in Harlem, with important African-American, African, and Caribbean work, and the Toledo Museum of Art, with an impressive glass collection from the ages. --From Publishers Weekly

"The Best American Travel Writing 2001" Paul Theroux Our price: $19.25 | You save: $8.25
...available here.

"The Best American Travel Writing" for the year just past 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.
From the acclaimed chronicler of open spaces comes a stunning and lyrical evocation of a practically unknown place and people. Beginning in 1993, Ehrlich traveled to Greenland, the northernmost country in the world, in every season--the four months of perpetual dark, the four months of constant daylight, and the twilight seasons in between--traveling up the coast and befriending the resilient and generous Inuits along the way.
