“Beasley’s travel essays are splendid, thoughtful, resonate snapshots of people, ideas and places. Conger Beasley sensitively and wisely instructs us that the spirit of place is always the spirit of the people, held like a hand cupped rose in the memory, long after the visit is over.”
—Andrew Salkey
