9780143056157: Kiss the Sunset Pig: An American Road Trip with Exotic Detours

'Kiss the Sunset Pig: An American Road Trip with Exotic Detours' is Laurie Gough's second travel book. Laurie Gough has been lauded by Time Magazine as "one of the new generation of intrepid young female travel writers".
Laurie Gough writes brilliantly, bringing her road trip from Ontario to California alive, her insights are profound. She interweaves her trip with other memories from her magical travel experiences, a luminous canoe trip in the Yukon, a chaotic bus ride across Sumatra and many others. The stories are like beads, which glint whichever way you turn them. At the end of the trip not only has Laurie gained in understanding, she has realized why she loves to travel - and perhaps why it might be time to put down some roots.

Laurie Gough's first book (which was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Travel Book Award and was the silver medal winner of ForeWord Magazine's Travel Book of the Year in the USA) `Kite Strings of the Southern Cross: Tales from the South Pacific' (ISBN: 978-1-907109-08-9) is also available from Chalkstream Books.
