As Andrew McCarthy wrote inThe New York Times Book Review, "For more than 20 years, Travelers' Tales has been publishing books that might best be described as the literary equivalent of a group of travelers sitting around a dim cafe, sipping pints or prosecco and trading their best stories."

Now, new from Travelers' Tales comesThe Best Women's Travel Writing, Volume 12: True Stories from Around the World--the latest collection in the best-selling, award-winning series that invites you to ride shotgun alongside intrepid female nomads as they wander the globe discovering new places, faces, and facets of themselves.

"In story after story," McCarthy wrote about the previous volume ofThe Best Women's Travel Writing, "the refreshing absence of bluster and bravado, coupled with the optimism necessary for bold travel, create a unifying narrative that testifies to the personal value and cultural import of leaving the perceived safety of home and setting out into the wider world."

The essays in this volume are as diverse as the destinations, exploring themes of kindness, transformation, nature, friendship, family, strength, and resilience.
