Best Adventure Travel Books

On our Mailbag episode #64 of The Dear Bob and Sue Podcast, we responded to a listener who asked what non-fiction, adventure or travel-related books have inspired us in our travels. Since then we’ve received several requests for the list of books we discussed in that episode, so in this post you’ll find the books along with a brief description. Please enjoy, and thank you for tuning into our podcast.
