The first in a series of books collecting travel and humor pieces the author wrote for a fabulously well-regarded newspaper column ("fabulously well-regarded" by his two dozen readers, anyway) while teaching college-level English classes onboard US Navy ships. Thrill as he rides a camel! Gasp as he avoids immolation in a volcano (by not, y'know, falling in)! Be filled with the joy of travel!
