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.
Ronald Wright is the author of five highly praised books including Time Among the Maya, On Fiji Islands and the international bestseller Stolen Continents. He lives near Port Hope, Ontario.
