Travel is greatly shaped by those with whom we travel, and relationships are greatly shaped by the challenges of traveling together—which is precisely what makes this collection, with its specific focus on mother-daughter travel, so compelling. At some times irreverent and funny, at others, thought-provoking and reflective, these stories reveal what happens when mother and daughter step out of the complacent familiarity of routine into uncharted territory. Molly McHaney relates her struggle for independence as she, at twenty-seven, and her mother, at fifty-three, head off on an African safari. Janna Graber brings her ten-year-old daughter to Thailand while she writes an article on child prostitution—and realizes that the subjects of her article are the same age as her daughter. New York Times writer Susan Catto relates her familial adventures on a Canadian canoe trip. Forced to interact in a new—and sometimes harrowing—context, these women offer not only ample inspiration and insight into how travel shapes this most complex and intimate of relationships—but a delightfully engrossing medley of travel adventures as well.
