    Another excellent collection, although I could have done with fewer pieces that were not really 'travel' writing per se but profiles of troubled places, such as an article about Flint's drinking water crisis. ...

    I usually enjoy these collections, in fact this is the first one that wasn't excellent. I read travel collections to inspire, to learn, to enjoy this world. Unfortunately, this editor decided to focus too much on the bleak, the sad, the awful parts of the world. Some were wonderful, bu...

    Mostly enjoyable collection of travel-related short pieces. However, there was a bit more politics than I would have preferred in the travel writing I read. The book contained a wide-range of material, from the uncomfortable-ness of an American on a French vacation, the black experienc...

    This was my first time reading on of those ?Best of American .... Writing?. I?ve always been curious about the series but never had seen the travel writing iteration of the series and of course Cheryl Strayed as editor caught my eye. Some really enjoyable essays, some meh. Nice a...

    Not as good as past issues, the articles weren't even organized, except alphabetically by author. Still, there were a few good ones: Why should a melon cost as much as a car?, Foxes of PEI, and the Digital Republic. ...
