Some Experiences Too Wild To Believe
by Shirley Bates
Some Experiences Too Wild to Believe: And Others is a collection of poetry mainly about Shirley Bates’ experiences and also Trump, the blue people of Kentucky, Easter, and sailing in Cowes, England.
Shirley’s adventures were unusual. Much of her book is about her travels alone around the world, mainly east of Europe. Her experiences yacht racing on San Francisco Bay are included. She has travelled around Europe for three months on a tour after college and can say that travelling alone is a different can of worms. Perhaps after reading her poems you also will get the travel bug!
