About this title


From Tanzania to China, Peru to the Arctic Circle, these stories are passports into a world where family travel has become par for the course. You'll discover how travel restores, revitalizes, and reveals the family, and how traveling with family can give us balance, roots, and stronger wings to explore the world.


Family Travel: The Farther You Go, the Closer You Get, from the critically acclaimed Travelers' Tales series, is a collection of 45 moving essays about traversing the globe with loved ones. Edited by Laura Manske, the book is a great read for any parent, but you don't have to have children to appreciate the humor, warmth, and candor of these topnotch writers' accounts of their experiences on the road. James O'Reilly talks of the travails of traipsing around France for several months with three small children in tow, Jane Meyers writes of taking a Mediterranean vacation with her long-ago-divorced husband for the sake of their two grown children, and Andre Aciman--who grew up in the seaside town of Alexandria, Egypt--learns you can't necessarily go home again. Kuki Gallmann, Michael Crichton, Eddy L. Harris, and comedian Paul Reiser (in an amusing bit on flying with an infant) are also featured. Though these writers don't gloss over less-than-merry journeys, they ultimately discover that indeed, the farther you go, the closer you get. --Jill Fergus
