Praise

“Whenever I open an atlas . . . part of me wants to pack up and hit the road for a year or two. But I doubt I’ll ever do it, because I’m too practical. Rita Golden Gelman . . . didn’t let practicalities stop her.” —Los Angeles Times

Tales of a Female Nomad follows Gelman from fragility to self-confidence as she traverses the globe.” —Chicago Tribune

“An exuberant homage to wanderlust.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Gelman doesn’t just observe the cultures she visits, she participates in them, becoming emotionally involved in the people’s lives. This is an amazing travelogue.” —Booklist
