Reviews

"Banks puts the literature back in travel writing in this extremely well-crafted book."--Library Journal
"[A] moving collection of travel pieces that rise to the level of literature"--Christian Science Monitor
"...[an] expansive, elegiac reflection on the pleasures and deceptions of travel...[Banks'] clarity of vision and muscular prose are as transporting as a mountain ascent."--Kirkus Reviews
"... [a] gusto-filled, retrospective anthology...Banks' warm, probing intellect guides readers on thoughtful journeys...Readers will be hard put to find a more engaging travel companion."--Booklist
"...[a] fine collection...Banks's narrative seductively juxtaposes rambles through lush volcanic mountains, white sand beaches and coral reefs with a barrage of memories of the hash he's made of his private life."--New York Times Book Review
