Take this journey Dec 14, 2004
This book introduced me to a cast of unforgettable people--real human beings in all their complexity and simplicity. Zoglin tells it straight. She simply shows us what she saw, describing in astute, unsentimental detail the land and the people she experienced without trivializing or sensationalizing her subjects. I loved taking this journey.
