Listen to an interview of Kristine K. Stevens, author of If Your Dream Doesn’t Scare You, It Isn’t Big Enough: A Solo Journey Around the World, by Leigh Rich, a “culture broker” who writes about art, books, health, history, politics, and science for the lay reader, bridging the gap between the academician and the amateur. The interview aired on “Listening to Literature” on WRUU.
About the book
In honor of her 40th birthday, Kristine K. Stevens sold her house, quit her job, and traveled solo around the world. Carrying a backpack and the naïve belief that the trip was nothing more than a six-month-long vacation, she hit the road.
As her journey moved on and off the beaten tourist path, she braved a monsoon in Zanzibar, a safari in Kenya, trekking in Nepal, kayaking in Thailand, caves in Laos, red plaid fish and lava in Hawaii, and grizzly bears in Alaska. Told with wonder, humor, and suspense, with historical facts woven into the tale, If Your Dream Doesn’t Scare You, It Isn’t Big Enough captures the twisted, unpredictable nature of global travel.
