Since publishing the original edition of A Woman's World in 1995, Travelers' Tales has been the recognized national leader in women's travel literature, and with the launch of the annual series The Best Travel Writing in 2004, the obvious next step was an annual collection of the best women's travel writing of the year. This title is the eleventh in that series The Best Women's Travel Writing presenting stimulating, inspiring, and uplifting adventures from women who have traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new places, peoples, and facets of themselves.

The common threads connecting these stories are a female perspective and fresh, compelling storytelling to make the reader laugh, weep, wish she were there, or be glad she wasn't. The points of view and perspectives are global, and themes are as eclectic as in all of our books, including stories that encompass spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, high adventure, romance, solo journeys, stories of service to humanity, family travel, and encounters with exotic cuisine.

The 31 true travel stories in this year's collection are, as always, wildly diverse in theme and location. They tell of places like California and Cuba, Switzerland and Singapore, Iran and Iceland, Montana and Mexico and Mongolia and Mali, our own back yards and some of the farthest, most extreme corners of the world. They are the personal stories we can't help but collect when we travel, stories of reaching out to embrace the unfamiliar and creating cross-cultural connections while learning more about ourselves.

In The Best Women's Travel Writing, Volume 11, you will: go scuba diving with sharks in Palaucook for Syrian refugees in Greecebe the first American to play pro basketball in the Czech Republicanger a nun in Ethiopiago whitewater rafting on the Nile in Ugandahelp slaughter a pig in Hungaryrealize your limits of filial piety in Singaporeseek healing at the hands of a witchdoctor in Mexico feast on rancid food in Icelandavoid hypothermia by spooning in Mongoliafall in love in Nepal ... and much, much more.
