Summer is made for vacations and weekends on the road, but who’s to say you actually have to travel to experience a summer getaway? In honor of the upcoming publication of James P. Lenfestey’s travel narrative Seeking the Cave, we chose our dream locations found in books published by Milkweed Editions. Indulge in a little wanderlust this summer by traveling to the isles of Ireland through Sara Eliza Johnson’s Bone Map, around the glittering shores of Lake Superior in Danielle Sosin’s The Long Shining Waters, or through the inhospitable Australian outback in Rafael de Grenade’s debut Stilwater. And if you’re on a budget — fear not. Take 25 percent off any of these books with the discount code “TRAVEL”.
