“I move throughout the world without a plan, guided by instinct, connecting through trust, and constantly watching for serendipitous opportunities.” —From the Preface
Tales of a Female Nomad is the story of Rita Golden Gelman, an ordinary woman who is living an extraordinary existence. At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of connecting with people in cultures all over the world. In 1986 she sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.

love the book, read it in paper back and inspired BUT...
...i downloaded this from iTune but can not play it in my library...WHY?????
I had to realllly push through this book. Was hoping it would get better. The writting style is horrible...she might as well have been writing small notes of meaningless day to day stuff in a journal. "I went to the store today" " i bought a coat".. Etc...not exact quotes but you get the idea....borinnggggg...then it changed here and there to a cook book. With detailed instructions on how to make stuff...it has no flow and there is no structure. I'm sure shes a nice lady but this book was disapointing to say the least.
