There is nothing quite like hitting the road by yourself to awaken your senses, sharpen your mind, and build your confidence. In twenty-three beautifully crafted essays, women recount the thrills of traveling solo.

Despite threat-assessment levels and airport-security hassles, women of all generations are traveling more freely and independently than ever before. In that go-for-it spirit, Go Your Own Way spans the globe: adventure diva Holly Morris finds herself lost in the jungles of Borneo, alone with her thoughts and a cold-blooded companion; Lara Triback's quest to learn the tango takes her to the late-night dance floors of Buenos Aires; Stephanie Griest finds female friends invaluable in her journey through Uzbekistan; and Amy Balfour recounts a hilarious trek up Yosemite's Half Dome.

The writers in Go Your Own Way pay tribute to the empowerment of independent adventure and discovery, offering up the perfect antidote for today's climate of fear and international discord. All the while, they show that alone doesn't have to mean lonely.

A collection of essays from women writers. A few are interesting (Jennifer Bingham Hull's Central American Dreams, Lara Triback's 3 Minutes of Freedom, Kate Chynoweth's Avoiding the Road to Wellness, Faith Adiele's This Nigeria will Eat You Up), more are dull (like this pregnant woman spent 2 weeks in Kauai by the beach, or breakfast in Manhattan). Too much self indulgence. Readers (at least I) want to read what you see and experience, not what you think.
