Notă biografică

Vivian Swift is the author of When Wanderers Cease to Roam: A Traveler's Journal of Staying Put and Le Road Trip: A Traveler's Journal of Love and France. When not traveling, she lives on Long Island Sound with her husband.


An engaging guide to gardens in locales ranging from Key West and post-Katrina New Orleans to Paris ('gardening capital of the world') and Marrakech . . . whimsical.
[A] seductive illustrated travelogue . . . there is loveliness and wit through whimsical words and pictures . . . Her splashy watercolors, washing joyfully throughout, include a lesson on how to paint fall leaves.
Charming . . . a voyage to nine gardens around the world and [Swift's] many adventures exploring them.
Swift artfully combines history, humor and horticulture to recount journeys to nine magical gardens in different parts of the world . . . This delightful journal touches the heart and moves the spirit.
I probably cannot adequately convey how much I absolutely loved reading When Wanderers Cease to Roam . . . It's charming, delightful and captivating . . . A perfect gift for travelers, those with artistic souls, those with a sense of wonder, those who are hug-the-hearths--in short, nearly everyone on your gift list.
J'adore Vivian Swift--my favorite travel writer, my favorite travel doodler. This book is a little secret pocket of treasure and intimacy. Enjoy every careful and carefree detail!
Swift's narrative feels like a vacation . . . A fun, funny, and wonderful experience; highly recommended.
