As a professional travel writer and editor for the past 40 years, Don George has been paid to explore the world. Through the decades, his articles have been published in magazines, newspapers, and websites around the globe and have won more awards than almost any other travel writer alive, yet his pieces have never been collected into one volume. The Way of Wanderlust: The Best Travel Writing of Don George fills this void with a moving and inspiring collection of tales and reflections from one of America’s most acclaimed and beloved travel writers. From his high-spirited account of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on a whim when he was 22 years old to his heart-plucking description of a home-stay in a muddy compound in Cambodia as a 61-year-old, this collection ranges widely. As renowned for his insightful observations as for his poetic prose, George always absorbs the essence of the places he’s visiting. Other stories here include a moving encounter with Australia’s sacred red rock monolith, Uluru; an immersion in country kindness on the Japanese island of Shikoku; the trials and triumphs of ascending Yosemite’s Half Dome with his wife and children; and a magical morning at Machu Picchu.

A passionate, thought provoking exploration of walking as a political and cultural activity, from the author of the memoir Recollections of My Nonexistence Drawing together many histories--of anatomical evolution and city design, of treadmills and labyrinths, of walking clubs and sexual mores--Rebecca Solnit creates a fascinating portrait of the range of possibilities presented by walking. Arguing that the history of walking includes walking for pleasure as well as for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit focuses on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from philosophers to poets to mountaineers. She profiles some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction--from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja--finding a profound relationship between walking and thinking and walking and culture. Solnit argues for the necessity of preserving the time and space in which to walk in our ever more car-dependent and accelerated world.

Nina and Adrian are in their late twenties and already feel stuck in the rat race of every day German life. The young couple searches for a way out that unites their longing for adventure, togetherness and unconventionality and finds: the perfect solitary island in the South Pacific! Without further ado, Nina and Adrian quit their jobs (a very liberating feeling by the way) and set off for paradise. Once there, the two live their dream. They harvest bananas and papayas, hang a hammock on the white sandy beach, grill freshly caught fish at the campfire at sunset and sleep under the most beautiful starry sky in the world. But soon reality breaks into their little paradise ...

"The way Kelly unfolds our interior experience is so rich, so insightful, so revealing, it brought a lump to my throat. I found myself saying 'YES - that's it!'" - From the Foreword by Christopher West, author of Fill These Hearts: God, Sex, and the Universal Longing "This book is a must-read for everyone who aches to live with meaning." - Richard Rohr, OFM, author of Falling Upward Spiritual Wanderlust is a field guide for anyone who's experienced undefinable longing.

Calling on the wisdom of two mystics, Augustine and John of the Cross, she'll help you locate the path to the Great Unknown we so desperately desire. With refreshing spark, wit, and vulnerability, she'll show you: Where this longing comes from How to hear what it is saying Why desire teases us with the already-but-not-yet How it opens us up to receive the divine What to do with your desires "in the meantime" Caution: only embark on this journey if you're prepared for some sore spiritual muscles, amazing vistas, and real interior challenge.

Where did passports come from? Why did 1930s stewardesses carry wrenches? And how did teetotalers shape the modern vacation? Wanderlust answers these questions and more, as author Laura Byrne Paquet delves into the social history of travel. Now a multi-billion dollar industry, travel is also one of the world's oldest. Paquet follows hypochondriac Greeks to the Oracle of Delphi, checks out the bedbugs in medieval coaching inns, enjoys a Finnish sauna with a group of well-bred Victorian ladies, and relaxes on a transatlantic liner with some of England's Bright Young Things from the 1920s. In breezy style, she explains the difference between a traveller and a tourist and explores the future of travel, from grand plans for commercial space travel to underwater hotels. As the book reveals, we've always loved to travel — the only thing that keeps changing is how we get from here to there.
