Welcome to the October 2013 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:
The Ugandan Goat Who Became A Harp That Nearly Stranded Me In Kenya - Luke Maguire Armstrong
One Ugandan goat's musical history, from a Kampala market to the USA via some Egyptian Air pocket lining.
In Canada's Forgotten First Capital - Tim Leffel
Despite a UNESCO World Heritage fort, the Thousand Islands nearby, and a pleasant historic center, Canada's original capital city of Kingston remains off the radar.
Exploring my Pilgrim Past at Plymouth - Becky Garrison
A writer with relatives who 'came over on the Mayflower' heads to trinket-laden Plymouth, Massachusetts to see where her ancestors landed and survived.
World Music Reviews - Laurence Mitchell
>The latest "Red Hot" charity collection channels Fela Kuti, Brooklyn does Balkan, a musical mandala, and historic funk tracks from Ghana.
Travel Book Reviews - Susan Griffith
From the sublime (meditations on following footpaths across familiar and distant landscapes) to the ridiculous (the antics of a television angler compelled to catch fish on cue in beautiful and remote bodies of water). Plus an hilarious road trip en famille around France.
