Truly the BEST of the Best American Series...a Changing of the Guard Perhaps?
Reviewed in the United States on October 15, 2018
If only Cheryl Strayed could edit every Best American series. I have already taught from the book after reading it cover-to-cover in one sitting. These essays actually INSPIRE the students.
This is by far the most engaging, diverse, and refreshing group of travel writing essays I've seen in one collection.
It feels like the beginning of a changing of the guard from the smothering, dominant perspective of white, male, privileged travellers. Halle-freaking-lujah and Amen, Cheryl Strayed. Well chosen!
Thank you for putting this together. I will be teaching from it, and recommending it to others, for years to come.
