Travel And Adventure Writing

Spring has sprung across most of the nation, and it's that time of year when people get the urge to travel and shake off the winter blues. Join Ray Suarez for a discussion of traveling and finding those far-off places with two noted writers who've spanned the globe. They'll talk about risk-taking, and what endless travel does to a person's sense of home and place, plus, they'll talk about how it's getting harder and harder to get away from it all. Guests: Tim Cahill Author Jaguars Ripped My Flesh ; A Wolverine is Eating My Leg ; and Pecked to Death By Ducks (reissued by Vintage, 1996) Contributing Editor Outside Magazine Livingston, MT Pico Iyer Author Cuba and the Night (Vintage 1996); Falling Off the Map (1995); and Video Night in Kathmandu (1994) Essayist Time Magazine Contributing Editor Conde Nast Traveler New York City, NY Listeners call in
