    Harrington has been covering--and promoting--accessible travel for 15 years with her magazine Emerging Horizons, with travel columns in other periodicals, and with several volumes on various dimensions. This guide first appeared in 2001, and is revised here to encompass the ripening of baby-boomers with their votes and money sweetening the market, and new laws in the US, Canada, and Europe in 2008 and 2009. She considers airplanes and airports, motor vehicles, busses, trains, hotels, kids, ships and boats, when things go wrong, beyond the US, travel agents, Internet resources, accessible recreation, and budget traveling.
