In these linked stories Jewel navigates the stage of life between 25 and 45, from the day she finds a body on a wild California beach to crossroads encounters with mystics, lovers, beggars, surgeons, and sailors on the shores of Maui and streets of San Miguel de Allende, Lisbon, Larkspur, Mill Valley, and Barcelona. Falling in love, whether with the one she marries, her newborn babies, total strangers, or the places she goes, calls forth conflicting sensations: ease/excitement, pleasure/danger, attachment/release. One eye sees and the other is blind as Jewel learns to love and grieve by staying in motion, finding and losing her way in the crowds and landscapes, heart cracked open.

Real-life flight attendant Heather Poole has written a charming and funny insider’s account of life and work in the not-always-friendly skies. Cruising Attitude is a Coffee, Tea, or Me? for the 21st century, as the author parlays her fifteen years of flight experience into a delightful account of crazy airline passengers and crew drama, of overcrowded crashpads in “Crew Gardens” Queens and finding love at 35,000 feet. The popular author of “Galley Gossip,” a weekly column for AOL’s award-winning travel website Gadling.com, Poole not only shares great stories, but also explains the ins and outs of flying, as seen from the flight attendant’s jump seat.

The historian Ros Pesman has produced a subtle, erudite and fastidiously researched account of Australian women's travel from the 1870s - when travel in Europe became popular - until 1970, when jet travel altered the concept of this key Australian rite of passage. Drawing on innumberabletravel diaries and letters and interviews, and mindful of her own decision in the 1960s to leave Australia as soon as she possibly could after leaving university, Pesman analyses the different needs and expectations of Australian women of all types and generations. For many, she argues, Europe -Britian in particular - seemed to promise a kind of 'finish' or sophistication they could not attain in Australia; for some, presentation at Court and a refined accent offered a kind of nirvana, guaranteeing security and acceptability; for others - artists and intellectuals like Stella Bowen,Christina Stead, Henry Handel Richardson, Margaret Preston, Shirley Hazzard, Jill Kerr Conway, Jill Neville, the extraordinary Doris Gentile - it promised a kind of personal, sexual, political, intellectual freedom.Genteel notions of class and femininity were reinforced, while for others new ways of living were made possible. The lives of many of these women are largely unknown, and often astonishing in their variety and daring. What is surprising is the scale of the travel many Australian women undertook. Thewife of one Tasmanian premier made 33 separate visits to Europe. In the 1930s three times as many women were going to Europe as were men. After reading Pesman, it is difficult to think of a key Australian artist, intellectual or public figure who was not affected in some way by her adventuresabroad.

As a setting for juvenile literature, the Arctic has traditionally been a space for adventure, the exotic and the fantastic. More recent works have used the Arctic setting to explore a dystopian future, often related to climate change. The aim of the present volume is to examine themes in Arctic juvenile fiction from the early nineteenth century until today. The deceptive image of the Arctic as geographically uniform seems to promise a cultural coherence, but the collection illustrates the diversity of Arctic literature by critically discussing and comparing works written by visitors and settlers as well as by indigenous peoples. The chapters combine macro- and micro-perspectives to interrogate and illuminate the role of Arctic literature for young readers in creating, maintaining and increasingly challenging Arctic myths and motifs.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2005 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,1, University of Potsdam (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: Diese Studie untersucht das Zusammenspiel zwischen imperialen und Weiblichkeitsdiskursen in den Reiseberichten britischer Frauen des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. Im Besonderen werden die Reiseberichte von Lucie Duff Gordon und Amelia Edwards beleuchtet und hinsichtlich ihrer Einordnung in kulturelle, politische und soziale Zusammenhange analysiert. Das Augenmerk liegt dabei hauptsachlich auf Konstruktionen von Geschlecht und Identitat, um aufzuzeigen, dass britischen Mittelstandsfrauen, trotz der strengen patriarchalen Eingrenzung, die Kolonialherrschaft Englands emanzipatorische Auswege aufzeigte. Aufgrund des widerspruchlichen Verhaltnisses von imperialen und als maskulin konnotierten Diskursen und Weiblichkeitsdiskursen des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts in den Reisetexten von Frauen, lassen sich Konstruiertheit und Instabilitat beider Diskurse darstellen. Das erste Kapitel dieser Arbeit gibt einen Uberblick uber postkoloniale und feministische Ansatze bezuglich der Reiseliteratur von britischen Autorinnen. Es wird vor allem ein theoretischer Rahmen und eine Methode zur Analyse von imperialen Reisetexten herausgearbeitet. Daruberhinaus wird die Position des Kritikers/der Kritikerin dekonstruiert, um die diskursive Einbettung reprasentativer Praktiken zu beleuchten und einen selbst-kritischen Zusammenhang zwischen imperialer Vergangenheit und gegenwartigen Diskursen zu knupfen. Im zweiten Kapitel wird auf die konkrete historische und kulturelle Situation von viktorianischen Frauen eingegangen. Der zweite Teil des Kapitels befasst sich dann naher mit der historischen Entwicklung des Reisens und der Tradition von reisenden Frauen im neunzehnten Jahrhundert. Zwei konkrete Texte von zwei viktorianischen Autorinnen werden ausfuhrlich im dritten und vierten Kapitel besprochen. Sowohl Amel
