Home and Away

Publisher: Vintage Canada
The first major collection of travel pieces from the bestselling author of Stolen Continents reveals the world to us--from Belize to Egypt--in all its comedy, strangeness and humanity.  Home and Away is a marvellous mix of adventure and observation, antique civilizations, contemporary politics and irresistible storytelling.
