Welcome to the March 2015 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:
Watching the World Series in Cambodia and Korea - Michael Shapiro
A writer who has derided travelers for being too attached to home finds himself in a quandary when his favorite sports team enters the championship.
Chernobyl: Mutate and Survive - Tom Coote
Nearly thirty years after the nuclear power plant disaster at Chernobyl, both tourism and wildlife are thriving within the exclusion zone.
Biking Through the Bounty of Oregon - Tim Leffel
Seeing the Willamette Valley, Mount Hood, and Portland at cycling speed, there's a feeling that almost all the Earth's best riches are pouring forth from this one patch of land.
World Music Reviews - Graham Reid
The impressive debut by a new generation from Mali addresses its plight, a brass but not brassy band from Boston, sublime spiritual music from the past, and passable pop from Kenya's back pages.
Travel Book Reviews - William Caverlee
A classic tale goes big for Hollywood, another anthology of travel stories edited by Don George, and a memoir of the "Two Italies" that has two meanings.
