Welcome to the April 2017 issue of our online magazine, the home of the best travel stories from authors on the move, as well as the latest new and notable books. Here's what we've got in store for you:
A Short Trek in Bhutan's Wild East - Michael Buckley
Where the yaks and the yetis roam—and where Brokpa nomads weave their legends
A Hermit's Prayer on Salvation Mountain - James Michael Dorsey
The Result of a solitary man's quest to build a holy mountain in the California desert lives on as a pilgrimage site in the blinding sun.
Recapturing My Religious Satirical Soul in Lutherland, Germany - Becky Garrison
A religious skeptic who can't resist Christian satire visits Germany during celebrations of the anniversary of Martin Luther's reformation movement.
Into the Depths of the Sahara in Algeria - J. Jaye Gold
Venturing into the vast Sahara Desert where it's sand in every direction, takes quiet unplugging to the extreme.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
A very funny Englishman (called Moore) and a very serious American (called Moor) both achieve epic challenges. The first cycling from northern Finland to the Black Sea, the second hiking the Appalachian Trail and beyond. Plus a witty yet serious essayist who ponders the in-built disappointments of travel.
