Lost, Kidnapped, Eaten Alive! True stories from a curious traveler

LKEA-cover-thumbWhat happens when a practical midwestern gal sets off to explore the world? Laurie McAndish King’s travels seem innocent in the planning stage, but surprising adventure follows as she finds herself tracking lions without a gun in Botswana … attempting to eat a horse in southern Italy … marrying a Maasai warrior in Kenya … and sampling the world’s most expensive coffee—brewed from the excrement of a small Balinese mammal.

Whether she is lost in Melbourne, kidnapped in the Tunisian desert, or eaten alive by the blood-sucking denizens of tropical north Queensland, King’s stories—quirky, poignant, occasionally unsettling, and often funny—are inspiring and entertaining. Praise for Lost, Kidnapped, Eaten Alive!
