    One thought on “Inspired Journeys: Travel Writers in Search of the Muse”

    1. I approach collections of essays with caution Generally they are such a mixed bag that I merely get annoyed with the bad ones while being grateful to meet a couple of decent writers Brian Bouldrey, the editor of Inspired Journeys defied my expectations EVERY essay in this book was excellent Each very different in tone and subject, despite a loose cohesion of theme And I am so glad that I read the book.The loose theme is pilgrimage which some writerss take literally and some take figuratively All [...]

    2. I m giving this 4 stars because I really disliked one of the pieces in this book Other than this one story, I loved all the rest and would have given it a higher rating.

    3. Some wonderful stories here one even made me wonder about visiting Antarctica as she wrote so descriptively A real variety and found muses reading them, hoping to get some writing done myself.
