"Pilgrim in the Palace of Words works as classic travel literature. As a bonus, it's also a fascinating take on how languages mould and inform societies." -- Winnipeg Free Press Jan 2010 "Pilgrim in the Palace of Words is certainly defined more by Dixon's first-person experiences, chance encounters and dialogue with strangers than academic theories" Calgary Herald Jan 2010 "Pilgrim in the Palace of Words is immensely appealing to anyone with a yearning to travel, an interest in the world's diverse cultures and a love of words. And there is enough adventure to satisfy even the most critical of armchair travelers." Chronicle-Herald March 2010 "Pilgrim in the Palace of Words is a book that makes linguistics an enjoyable read by tying the author's own experiences together. From a nightmare at airport security to walking through ancient footsteps of civilizations long gone but not forgotten." - GAP Adventure Travel Blog April 2010
