Reviews

The Vancouver Sun Anthology of travel stories by Canadian women - Saturday, November 05, 2005 TORONTO-- Thirty-two Canadian women have contributed real-life stories to the new anthology Outside of Ordinary, writing about how travel has changed their lives. Some explore "the healing power of nature," says the book's introduction. Others discover a sense of inner strength while retracing their family roots or "breaking away from confining roles or situations." The stories span the globe. Sharon Butala travels to Italy, Lorna Crozier to Chile, Jane Eaton Hamilton to Mexico, Ellen Jaffe to Russia, Alison Lohans to Iowa and Carole TenBrink to Vietnam. Other women write about the southern United States, New Zealand, Indonesia, Nepal, Peru, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Nicaragua, China, Eritrea and Spain. Along the way they reveal "deeply personal thoughts on their relationships, health, families, ancestors," say the editors. Outside of Ordinary, edited by Lynn Cecil and Catherine Bancroft, is published by Second Story Press.
