Welcome to the June 2016 issue of online magazine Perceptive Travel, the home of great travel stories from book authors and the latest notable travel book and world music reviews. Here's what we've got in store for you:
Nomadic Voices in the Kingdom of Jordan - David Lee Drotar
Touring the greatest hits of Jordan has gotten more complicated as the bedouins evolve and refugees stream in from Syria.
Breaking Bread in Kanas - James Michael Dorsey
In far Northwestern China, where a shark fin outline on a map punches Russia in the belly and divides Kazakhstan from Mongolia, invisible spirits and deities prowl the land.
Diving Into Art in the Land of NASCAR - Tim Leffel
In the region where stock car racing went pro and you can still drive autos on the beach, a vibrant community of artists balances out the aesthetic scales.
World Music Reviews - Laurence Mitchell
Retro African guitar rock Caribbean roots music, Cuban Country, and an atmospheric analog journey with Mop Mop.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
Exploring trains as a place where social microcosms can be enjoyed, an invitation not to take flying for granted, and a potentially inspirational journal.
