A friend lent me this book, and I enjoyed it very much, though I wouldn't have thought to buy it. I do like me some essays. The writing was excellent through and through. My only complaint was that some of the essays concerned event back in the 80s...not very current. Some of those stories were good, some less so. Overall, a well done book.

I've had this book for years I think and just got around to reading it. I took it with me when I got called for jury duty. It was the perfect book as it is a collection of mini stories told by women traveling alone or with other women. Great stories.
