Travel 6 of 1
Available as individual, standalone books or as an anthology, this series contains stories that stretch right from the moment of birth to the sometimes surprisingly colorful business of death. There are tales of arrivals and departures, beginnings and endings, ships that have sailed and ships that have come in. There are stories of festivities perched on the brink of a war zone, on the brim of the Mediterranean and on the banks of the Mississippi. Our authors have contributed tales of Accra, Ghana; Valencia, Spain; Memphis, Tennessee; Damascus, Syria; plus a mixtape of port calls and cruise jobs from Hong Kong to Alaska through the Panama Canal and on to the Caribbean; and a journey that perhaps travels further than any of the others, yet doesn’t leave Boston, Massachusetts. These accounts come from both established travel writers with an incredible way with words and from exciting new voices that you’ll be hearing much, more from.
