📒Wanderlust ✍ Rebecca Solnit
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.
📒Wanderlust ✍ Elisabeth Eaves
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : This book documents the impulses that drive Elisabeth Eaves' insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar. She is both restless vagabond and astute observer as she crisscrosses five continents, chasing the exotic in both culture and romance. She loses herself in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, rekindles old love and new passion in Cairo, and finds an intinerant brotherhood of raucous men in the land Down Under. Like the random possessions she leaves in her wake, from Australia to Yemen, she also leaves behind a string of lovers. But this is about more than just sensual conquest; it is also a journey of self-discovery, in which her pursuit ultimately guides her home - back cover.
📒Wanderlust ✍ Laura Byrne Paquet
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : Where did passports come from? Why did 1930s stewardesses carry wrenches? And how did teetotalers shape the modern vacation? Wanderlust answers these questions and more, as author Laura Byrne Paquet delves into the social history of travel. Now a multi-billion dollar industry, travel is also one of the world's oldest. Paquet follows hypochondriac Greeks to the Oracle of Delphi, checks out the bedbugs in medieval coaching inns, enjoys a Finnish sauna with a group of well-bred Victorian ladies, and relaxes on a transatlantic liner with some of England's Bright Young Things from the 1920s. In breezy style, she explains the difference between a traveller and a tourist and explores the future of travel, from grand plans for commercial space travel to underwater hotels. As the book reveals, we've always loved to travel — the only thing that keeps changing is how we get from here to there.
📒Wanderlust ✍ Danielle Steel
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : Wanderlust is the story of Audrey Driscoll. Orphaned young, Audrey has grown up caring for her eccentric millionaire grandfather and her demanding younger sister, Annabelle, who assume she will always be there for them. Sheltered yet restless, responsible beyond her years yet hungering for experience, Audrey is hopelessly bound until she herself makes the daring decision to leave. As the 1930s unfold, alone, camera in hand, she will shock friends and outrage family as she plunges headlong into the wider world. Crossing the Atlantic aboard the luxurious Queen Mary, Audrey meets James and Violet Hawthorne, who will draw her into a sophisticated circle of artists and expatriates. And it is they who will introduce her to Charles Parker-Scott, in who Audrey will come to recognize a twin soul, a man propelled by relentless curiosity and driven by conflicting needs for intimacy and independence. Together they will spend an exquisite summer at Cap d'Antibes, then board the Orient Express on an adventure that will carry them to a remote outpost in China. But at the farthest reaches of this journey Aubrey must choose again. Japan has attacked China. Charles knows he must return to Europe at once. But Audrey becomes involved with a besieged orphanage and decides to remain in China without Charles, caring for the abandoned children until help arrives. In time Audrey will return to America with a daughter of her own. While she must come home to San Francisco to confront a world irrevocably changed by time, she finds she cannot stay. From prewar Germany to London during the Blitz, from a wrenching reunion with Charles to a war zone in North Africa, again and again she must choose between the dictates of her conscience and the yearnings of her heart. For Audrey Driscoll and the men and women whose lives touch hers, wanderlust is the inescapable element. Born at a time when women were expected to stay close to home and fulfill traditional roles, Audrey is compelled to follow the thread of events that will destroy the complacency of the past and shape the future. From Europe to China, from San Francisco to North Africa, she is irresistibly drawn into a man's world of conflict, discovery, and danger. In a vivid novel of breathtaking scope, Danielle Steel has once again surpassed herself in creating an unforgettable tale of men and women caught in the tides of personal drama and historic event. Wanderlust is Danielle Steel's finest journey. From the Paperback edition.

📒Wanderlust ✍ Ginger Meeder
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : This book was written as a therapeutic tool, because of being a victim of domestic violence. The events that took place in this book were actual events; the names of the characters were changed to protect what was left of their dignity. Everyone at one point in his or her lives feels like this is the way life is, well it doesn't have to be. You have the power to change what happens to you and your children by the choices that you make for yourself and them. The choices you make have an affect on your children in one way or another. Then there are the people that think it'll never happen to them. This book was written for those people. If it can happen, it will. There are no guarantees in life. If you know the symptoms then you can prevent the years of heartaches. I can only hope that no one ever has to go through life the way I did, no one should ever have to feel as low about himself or herself as a person, everyone is special and has a purpose in life.
📒Wanderlust ✍ Laura Fokkena
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : In the early 1900s, in a German village on the North Sea, a man named Wilhelm Schoon mistakenly thought he'd killed someone in a bar fight. Nervous, he slipped over the Dutch border and emigrated to Iowa, "where you can just spit on the ground and the corn grows three meters high!" Thirty years later his three granddaughters back in Germany inherited his land in America. One chose to emigrate; the other two stayed behind. Wanderlust chronicles the repercussions of their choices. The daughter of a midwife recalls her childhood during WWII as her home is attacked by fellow Germans. A nine-year-old boy watches his father learn the art of farming in "Amerika." An American woman follows her German husband back to Europe and for the first time views the U.S. through foreign eyes. A young man in East Germany devotes his life to the study of the violin, secretly hoping to gain a place in a touring orchestra so that he will have the chance to defect, but as the Berlin Wall falls he finds he must reevaluate his life and his ambitions. Wanderlust is both a memoir and a travelogue, a story of work, family, love, and immigration.
📒Wanderlust ✍ Marc Cardinal
📝Wanderlust Book Synopsis : Meet Sydney Taylor who is born with what I call Wanderlust, which is the impulse to wander or, as they say in modern times, a strong desire to travel and explore the world. From his birth in Greater London in a town called Leytonstone, England in 1887, follow his life as he runs away at a young age of fifteen to Canada. See and learn what he experiences as he starts his life-long work with the world's largest and oldest company, the Hudson Bay Company, which explored Canada and parts of the United States of America. See him as he travels across Canada, where he begins working in the wild, rough environment of the early 1900’s trading with the Native Americans in outposts across northern Ontario. The story is based on the true-life journals of Sydney Taylor but the story is expounded on in such a fashion as to learn in detail about the history and the geography of everything he came into contact with. Of Sydney Taylor, you can see from the beginning of the book that his life must have fashioned him into a person who would continually move to new places and, as such, he developed a taste for travel or, as I call it, Wanderlust.
