Musings of a Vegetarian Traveller is the opening story in this collection of tales told by a woman whose appetite for life and travel took her on innumerable journeys. One of the most notable?her journey from meat eater to vegetarian?provides a deeply personal and sometimes very funny look into the worlds she encountered. But as Maureen says, "The story of my transformation from a meat eating to vegetarian is not about food, but rather, it is about the interesting, diverting, amusing, distressing, provocative, and irritating things that have happened to me as a vegetarian traveller". For adventurers and armchair travellers alike, sociologist Maureen Stone offers a different perspective on travel writing. From the Caribbean to Europe, India, Asia, Africa, and South America, readers will experience a new look at familiar landscapes with her musings and reflections on personal, political, social, and contemporary issues.
