For ten years the editors of Travelers' Tales have run a writing competition to find the best travel story of the year: The Solas Awards. Over those years, thousands of stories have come across their desks, from writers famous and unknown, covering all corners of the globe with stories of adventure and discovery, love and loss, humor and absurdity, grief and joy. In this collection appear all of the top prize winners of the last ten years, stories that bring readers along for journeys that are inspiring, uplifting, and, very often, transformative. These tales are powerful, moving testaments to the richness of our world, its cultures, people, and places.

    Face your deepest fears alone in an Alaskan winter
    Encounter the realities of prostitution in Thailand
    Absorb the rhythms and soul of Flamenco in Spain
    Fall in love with a home in rural France and make it your own...
and much more
