Award-winning novelist Katherine Govier experienced first-hand what many writers feel about travel: it is a need. To discover characters, settings and customs which they can’t find at home, authors set out for new terrain. Recollections of their voyages create a special category of travel writing. Poets and novelists travelling writers, but not professional travel writers are footloose wordsmiths who, as Govier describes, promise a double treat: a person of imagination and insight pitched into a foreign environment fraught with danger, mystery and unforeseen delights

Katherine Govier (Author). The two men do not shy from conflict over this, and Govier handles their conversations skillfully, affording both men the chance to state their beliefs and without letting either slide into too-easy cliché or didacticism. As the two men move in and out of each other's circle, their watery paths crossing and criss-crossing periodically, we move back and forth through Audubon's past and present, bearing witness to his many false names and lives, the effect of his obsession on his wife and sons, his inability to see the true worth of Maria-the woman who.

Just today found my lost copy of Without a Guide. Lost for 10 years in a packed box, it had been a gift I'd treasured before heading off to parenthood and a series of moves.

I could not remember the title. Could not remember the authors. Could remember the stories, however; and have spent hours typing in various keywords on Google trying to identify the lost book. Now, with the original copy back in hand, I came to Amazon to buy more and found a mediocre review that requires a response. "2 stars" and whinging about issues of gender while regarding this little book?! Get a complete Margaret Atwood anthology and be done with it.

This is not just a set of travel stories, nor is it a femlit collection. It is a Canadian anthology of short stories written by female authors that happen to regard foreign places. It is a brilliant collection and I'm so glad to have found it again. Some stories are poignant, some are incredibly funny. The first person characters and places stay with you (truly). My favs were Through a Barren Land by Graham; In Fez without a Guide by Govier; and the haunting, haunting Highway to the Black Mountain by Sidhwa.

Outstanding short stories and essays by women who traveled alone, often through the wilds or desert.

It's no coincidence that the women who wrote these selections do not belong to the travel writing genre per se. The essays are honest and are a picture of realistic travel. It's not the typical travel stuff that sells--not the waving palm trees and lush tropical islands--it's the nit and grit. What a relief. I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me until I read this book. My travels just did not fit in with the Shangri-la, all-enlightening journeys that mainstream travel authors write about to appeal to an American audience. This is a great book, though I admit, it won't necessarily conjour up pictures of paradises that don't exist.
