Elmer Fudd BS: Good Book (62* d) RE: BS: Good Book 05 Feb 07

If you like travel books, Eric Hansen is a vivid and entertaining travel writer. "Motoring with Mohammed" is the best travel book I have ever read. "Stranger in the Forest" and "The Bird Man and the Lap Dancer" are excellent as well. "Orchid Fever" is not strictly a travel book, but is a riveting read nonetheless. Hansen is a first-class writer.

Pico Iyer is another excellent travel writer, although some books are better than others. He is more cerebral and philosophical than Hansen, who is marvelously descriptive and often humorous. "Video Night in Kathmandu" and "Falling Off the Map" are both wonderful.
