Review: Fearless Footsteps

In this crossover publication, thirty-six writers leave their footprints in true travel stories that capture the spirit of adventure. These are not travel guides in any form, but strong narratives that inspire and expose each story’s sense of daring verses independence, an overcoming of fear and challenge that travel has initiated, and the euphoria in executing a challenge.

The title of the book, Fearless Footsteps, perfectly portrays the journeys depicted in the collection. For me to choose a standout is impossible for every story is outstanding in content, presentation and tone.

The stories incorporate travel from and to, around the globe. They begin with helping boat people come ashore in Greece, to continue with hiking in North Wales to extinguish depression, sisters travelling through Europe – their fears and experiences,

as bartender in the Amsterdam underground culture, adventures on horseback or on foot, down river, and descending into a crater after an uphill trek.

These are merely examples of the variety contained in this brilliant collection that educates through the narrative without ever being didactic, informing about countries, traditions, customs, approaches to travellers, and difficulties and joys experienced.

Intrepid Times has succeeded in producing another spectacular compilation of personal experiences about travel. Readers will be impressed with the quality of the work which will send them to their computers to seek out their own next travel adventure.
