Product Details


“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

“This is a courageous, gentle, fascinating book, but be forewarned it’s no idle armchair read. Like all of the best travel writing, Rita Golden Gelman’s wanderings are likely to provoke powerful self-examination, which could easily catalyze your own wanderlust and curiosity.”
—Alexander F. Lobrano, European correspondent, Gourmet, and author of Frommer’s Irreverent Guide to Paris

“Rita Gelman takes us on a journey filled with cultural interactions and human observations. An inspirational story, particularly for anyone considering a major lifestyle change.” 
— Melinda Blanchard, co-author of A Trip to the Beach
