Product Details


“This book is as remarkable as the landscape it describes.” —Newsweek

“One of the most interesting, revealing, and delightful travel books I have read.”—The New York Review of Books

“His journal is about tangles and unrealized ambitions . . . and he understands wonderfully what to make of what he sees and hears. . . . A strange and beautiful book.”—The Washington Post

“Hoagland builds up an extensive, vivid picture of a place and people and, like all good travel writers, makes the reader want to start right out over his tracks.”—The Atlantic Monthly

“A beautiful book: so sharp and persistent in rendering the visible world, and yet so strangely wild with feeling.”—Philip Roth

“A spellbinding document.”—George Plimpton
