Hot Feet and Far Hills by Judy Cannon

Book Description

An Insightful Tribute to Wanderlust As an Australian newspaper journalist, Judy Cannon reported on some of the world's most exotic and, often, volatile hot spots. Hot Feet and Far Hills collects the sights, smells, and revealing encounters that didn't make it into news stories. In 30 utterly engaging vignettes, she travels from Burma to Nepal, Pakistan to Peru, finding the haunting beauty that underlies these often troubled lands. Cannon's feet tramp the sleet of Darjeeling's January snowfalls, pedal the low hills of the Himalayas, tiptoe across the burning hot marble of Burmese pagodas. Through it all, she wrings profound meaning from the everyday whether the shrug of a Nepalese policeman or the Spartan hearth of a Pakistan kitchen, to discover truths about ourselves. Into this peripatetic narrative Cannon weaves the insightfulness of a Joan Didion with a profound empathy that's all her own. PRAISE FOR JUDY CANNON Judy Cannon's recollection of being a glint away from being knifed near Peshawar; or her soggy canoe exploits in Fiji; or her empathy with women fighting for human rights in Iran and Afghanistan, make every reader feel they are part of the scene.- Ian Mathews AM, former editor-in-chief, The Canberra Times
