Nothing to declare : memoirs of a woman traveling alone by Mary Morris( Book )

In a woman's life almost every choice involves risk, and in Nothing to Declare Mary Morris gives us a stunning account of those risks in one woman's journeys through Latin America. As Morris travels south to Mexico, she leaves the old measurements behind and confronts the realities of place, of poverty, of machismo, and of her own self. It is a dangerous land, where anything can happen. From the high desert of northern Mexico to the steaming jungles of Honduras, from the seashore of the Caribbean to the exquisite highlands of Guatemala, she experiences the rawness of life as a woman south of the border. A traveler in her own space and time, Morris befriends a Mexican woman and shares the precariousness of everyday life in a Latin American culture that heightens her own sense of deprivation. Haunted by memories of family and failed love, Morris tries to make sense out of her past as the present boundaries take new form. "I listen to the ghosts and obey the gods. The ghosts whisper, the gods prod." In this beguiling travel book, Mary Morris calls upon us to listen. With Nothing to Declare, Mary Morris joins the company of Beryl Markham, Mary Kingsley, Isabella Bird, and the few women travel writers in a field long the privileged territory of men

Wall to wall : from Beijing to Berlin by rail by Mary Morris( Book )
10 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Following her celebrated Nothing to Declare: Memoirs of a Woman Traveling Alone, Mary Morris, still alone, still graced with her extraordinary gifts of narrative and observation, presents an unforgettable account of her 1986 trip through China, Russia, and Eastern Europe. As in Nothing to Declare, she combines vivid portrayals of people and places with a more personal journey'in this case a search for roots, family, and her ancestral home in the Ukraine. Traveling across China and Mongolia to Russia on the Trans-Siberian Express and finally on to Berlin, Morris views the changing landscapes of nations and history. She encounters and converses with a colorful assortment of people from party-liners to dissidents, from ordinary men and women to the Moscow elite. Her journey, however, occurs against the backdrop of the nuclear accident at Chernobyl. On the train and in Russia, Morris hears terrifying, contradictory reports of the condition of the region so near her intended destination outside of Kiev. In midst of this anxious situation, she is forced to make a momentous decision a continent away from family and loved ones, adding a complex inner counterpoint to the public crises unfolding around her. Bringing her skills with foreign languages and her facility with people to this journey, Mary Morris once again proves that she is, in the words of Times magazine, "a fascinating guide, with an eye for the brutal, the garish, the silly and the bizarre." Wall to Wall is a powerful travel memoir illuminated by the unique sensibility of one of our finest writers
