In the beautiful Around And Into The Unknown, American writer and disability rights activist, Hillary Savoie, and her daughter, Esmé, journey from the first ultrasound through ICU through diagnosis after diagnosis to acceptance during Esmé's first four tumultuous years of life.

"This journey begins, well before it I knew it, as my daughter’s cells began dividing inside me—her DNA reproducing itself over and over again, complete with a series of mysterious little errors. And now, while my beautiful four-year-old daughter struggles to move, to eat, to speak, to thrive, we must wait to understand why. We must wait while the frontier of what genetics "knows" expands into what it "suspects" and even further, into the places my daughter seems determined to illuminate. In other ways, however, this is precisely her story: the stillness of this long slow progress inward, around and around toward the truth of my daughter’s DNA."

TRAVEL 6 of 1, the first series of short travel essays from P+H Books, contains stories that stretch right from the moment of birth to the sometimes surprisingly colourful business of death. There are tales of arrivals and departures, ships that have sailed and ships that have come in. There are stories of festivities perched on the brink of a war zone, on the brim of the Mediterranean and on the banks of the Mississippi.

Our authors have contributed tales of Accra, Ghana; Valencia, Spain; Memphis, Tennessee; Damascus, Syria; plus a mixtape of port calls and cruise jobs from Hong Kong to Alaska through the Panama Canal and on to the Caribbean; and a journey that perhaps travels further than any of the others, yet doesn’t leave Boston, Massachusetts.
