Ellen Boneparth has lived all her life consumed by a passion for travel. She has visited almost every continent and has traveled alone, with her husband, and as a leader of women's studies groups.
Journeying offers an amazing itinerary from Greek island life including house restorations, to roots trips to Israel and the Baltic countries, to encounters with indigenous women in Australia and Guatemala, to experiences with Asian women in India, China and Nepal. At the end of the book, Boneparth considers new ways to travel with narratives about Amsterdam, Mexico, and the Cook Islands.
Ellen Boneparth lived the last decade with her husband, Jim Wilkinson, in Santa Rosa, California. After the sudden loss of Jim in 2010, she polished this book as a tribute to him, her best travel partner and partner on the journey of life.
