Welcome to the June 2012 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:
Frank Lloyd Wright's Humble Desert Palace - Michael Shapiro
In the 75th year since the construction of the building where Frank Lloyd Wright spent his last years, a long-time fan visits the modest architectural experiment in the Arizona desert and gets the story behind the creator and his creation.
Clear and Prescient Danger in Morocco - Luke Armstrong
Figuring out if a steep mountain trail could kill you is easy. Determining danger in a hash-fueled daze among a room full of Arabic speaking men in Chefchaouen, Morocco is a different story...
From Red to Green in Bulgaria - Tim Leffel
In a land trampled by invaders and then occupied by the Soviets, free Bulgaria shines now as a place with a strong bond to the fertile land and majestic mountains.
World Music Reviews - Laurence Mitchell
Mountain music ties between Appalachia and Himalaya, trumpet fusion from Lebanon, and the latest from Serbian brass band star Boban Markovic.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
A collection of terrific travel stories for a respected charity, an out-of-tune story of a westerner hiring a surrogate Indian mother, and a sloppy trip by bicycle through villages and pubs along the length of the United Kingdom.
