Summary

In the vein of Wood's previous books Walking the Nile, Walking the Himalayas, and Walking the Americas, Arabia is a both a thrilling travelogue and a rich portrait of the people and cultures that Wood encounters along his journey. 
Arabiais likely to garner special international interest and coverage given its engagement with several geopolitical issues in the Middle East, such as the Syrian civil war, the terror of ISIS, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Arabia includes a full color, 16-page insert of photos taken throughout the expedition. 
Hudson Booksellers has selected Levison Wood as a guest of honor at their annual Hudson Show in Las Vegas this December. Previous guests of honor have included John Oliver and Trevor Noah. Following the Hudson Show, Hudson will specially promote Levison's books, including Arabia, throughout all of 2019. All of Wood's walking expeditions have been accompanied by a Channel 4 TV series, and Arabia is no exception: his documentary An Arabian Journey will premiere Fall 2019. The series for Walking the Nile and Walking the Himalayas have been sold throughout the world.
A Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller, Levison Wood's last book, Walking the Americas, was published in the UK alongside the release of Wood’s eponymous Channel 4 TV series, which reached over 2 million viewers per episode. It was also longlisted for the Banff Mountain Book award for adventure travel. In the US, Grove's 2017 publication of Walking the Americans garnered excellent reviews and was a New York Times Summer Reading pick in the Travel category, selected by Liesl Schillinger. Levison Wood’s 2016 book, Walking the Himalayas, won the Edward Stanford Adventure Travel Book of the Year Award. Wood’s Eastern Horizons has been shortlisted for the Adventure Travel Book of the Year award in the UK. A former British paratrooper who served in Afghanistan, Wood is an accomplished writer, photographer, and explorer. A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Wood was named one of “The 50 Most Adventurous Men” by Men’s Journal and a “Top 40 Traveller” by Condé Nast Traveler (UK).

    MaryJane Butters’ go-to guide for putting glamour into camping."Glamping, or glamour camping, one of the MaryJane's pet concepts, is about the juxtaposition of rugged and really pretty, grit and glam, diesel and absolutely darling."-The New York Times.Glamping-unleashing your inner wild while wearing a pair of fishing-lure earrings-is for every woman (or man!) who ever had a get-away-from-it-all fantasy (with a few frilly embellishments thrown in). Learn about the never-fail campfire, cooking with cast iron, how to change a flat, and much, much more. Follow the growing Glamping movement at maryjanesfarm.org and nationalglampingweekend.com.Like the infamous Calamity Jane, who said, “I figure if a girl wants to be a legend, she should go ahead and be one,” MaryJane Butters coined the term glamping years ago when she founded her unusual Idaho canvas wall-tent bed & breakfast, which was featured in The New York Times Magazine and Travel & Leisure as “the place to be.” Legend status achieved, MaryJane lives in Moscow, Idaho, where she runs her many businesses, which include a successful organic farm, product lines, a bed & breakfast, and MaryJanesFarm magazine. This is her fourth book.
