From the Back Cover

The Best American Series


Why do I travel? Why does anyone of us travel? Bill Bryson poses these questions in his introduction to The Best American Travel Writing 2016, and though he admits, I wasn t at all sure I knew the answer, they are questions worthy of examination. While the various contributors to this collection all travel for different reasons, one thing is for certain they come back with stories. Whether traversing the Arctic by dogsled, attending a surreal film festival in North Korea, or strolling the streets of a fast-changing Havana, their insights into the world and the human condition are illuminating and enthralling, providing an answer: This is why I like to travel.
The Best American Travel Writing 2016 includes

Michael Chabon, Alice Gregory, Paul Theroux
Dave Eggers, Helen Macdonald, Sara Corbett, Stephanie Pearson
Thomas Chatterton Williams, Pico Iyer,
and others
