The 50 Greatest Travel Books Of All Time
Daughters of the River Huong (9781935597315): Uyen Nicole Duong A Q&A with Uyen Nicole Duong Question: What was your vision in writing Daughters of the River Huong? Uyen Nicole Duong: I wanted to capture the beauty of my home culture, and the sorrow of its women in the form of literary fiction. Question: How did you come to write the book? Uyen Nicole Duong: I’m not sure anyone--even the writer--can fully understand all the sources for a writer’s creative energy, but in the case of this book I know that several themes at work for me were the city of Hue, the River Huong, and the native people from Champa. My mother, who is from Hue, has played an important part in my creative life since childhood.

The Devil's Cup: A History of the World According to Coffee (9780345441492): Stewart Lee Allen
I loved this book. I'm not much of a traveler; I don't enjoy camping; I rarely ride my bike (have never ridden a tandem); and am indifferent to ham and cheese sandwiches. However, this book reached out and grabbed me and wouldn't let go until I'd turned the last page. As I traveled vicariously around the world with the Highams (Dad John; Mom September, Katrina age 11 and Jordan age 8), I'd hear the train whistles, see the sunsets, get drenched in the rain, and even hobble around with one broken leg and a crutch. 360 Degrees Longitude: One Family's Journey Around the World (9781593501082): John Higham

Best Books I have Read on my Travels, Part 1 The thirsty demand for book recommendations is part-and-parcel of long term travel. While iPods and laptops are great time-wasters on an endless bus journey, nothing satisfies like the pages of a good book. When I travel, I try and limit my reading to non-fiction. After all, to travel for travel itself is so fundamentally indulgent that the least I can do is try and learn as I go! Most of the books I buy or trade are therefore non-fiction, but I’ve been handed some great fiction to read during my journey and have included those as well.
