The Beaten Track


Sarah Menkedick

This book is part travelogue and part an examination of what "independent travel" has become and what that means for the individuals travelling and the communities they visit. The travel stories are wonderfully engaging and the wider arguments about travel are thought-provoking and well-presented.

Favorite Thing: 
The descriptions of her trip and how that experience began to unravel her long-held thoughts about travel.
