This is a wonderful travel/adventure book. A fresh new approach to travel books, I loved the way it was organized, especially the "Most Useful Item to Pack." Reading about O'Hare's incredible adventures made me want to visit places I'd never dreamed of visiting. I loved her whimsical perspective. Well-done. For anyone who likes to travel, this is a must-read.

Nancy O’Hare’s Dust in My Pack is part of a new generation of travel books. This book, and others like it, is an adventure log, a testament to a life well lived. The book is divided into subject chapters for ease of use: Boat Trips, Multi-day Treks, Getaway Adventures, Ancient Cities, Animal Encounters and Unforgettable Accommodations, to name a few. Each chapter is then sub-divided into a particular destination, with a synopsis followed by the adventure. It’s a very clever way of organizing thi ...more

This is a fresh approach to travel books. Not like your Lonely Planet or any other guidebook. Less detailed perhaps, to where and when, but the book has an extraordinary number of chapters on experiences toggled down by a thirsty traveler.
From Antarctica to Zimbabwe and mostly everything in between, Nancy O’Hara went out of the way to find places less traveled, making this personal account a fascinating read. As many adventures were with budget oriented outfitters or tour-groups, the adventures

This experience based travel book is broken into areas of interest. For example, Ancient Cities or Get Away Adventures or one that was my favorite, Serene Scenes. The author has participated in a lot of adventures, most of which I am not sure I would be brave enough to do. In most cases the travel was rustic, affordable and strenuous. However, I have done one, the Volcano in Nicaragua and will be doing another one, Tikal in Guatemala next month. So even an average traveler, like myself, may find ...more
