Editorial Reviews

To travelers with a few miles on them, those who think age 80 is the time to hang up the suitcases, author Warren Rovetch says poppycock. He believes that's just when a few principles need to be kept in mind when planning a trip: 'Nourish the soul. Feed the mind. Rest the body. Leave time for happenings. Have fun.' In the latest addition to his 'Creaky Traveler' series, The Creaky Traveler in Ireland: A Journey for the Mobile but Not Agile ($15.95, Sentient Publications) provides for just that, taking readers on a journey through the most beautiful parts of Ireland, with visits along the way with the characters and sights that make the Emerald Isle such an enchanting place to spend time. Rovetch, a Fulbright Scholar who worked as an economist before retiring in Boulder with his wife, Gerda, (whom he lovingly refers to in the books as 'G'), writes in an almost wistful style, and this is far removed from the current guidebooks of the day that give practical information about where to stay or eat. Instead, there are poems and lovely prose, hand-drawn, Celtic-font maps and amusing anecdotes.
