Great Boston Globe Series

Globe has been running a superb series
called Crossing Divides on some of the earth’s forgotten places.
They have sent out two reporters to far flung locales in South America, and soon to Africa, Asia and the Arctic.
The first peice on a gold mine in deepest Venezuela could use more pictures to accompnay the
story (although there is a gallery), but it is a fine peice of travel journalism that melds the focused
reportage of a seasoned journalist (one of the writers is the winner of the prestigious
Lowell Thomas award) with the
elegant prose of a travel writer. I am very eager to see what comes next.
