The Way of Wanderlust PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Way of Wanderlust free pdf 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.
