Innocents Abroad Too by Michael Pearson

Book Description

Most people don't get the opportunity to circumnavigate the globe. Michael Pearson has had the good fortune to do it twice. As a two-term professor in the Semester at Sea Program, Pearson journeyed by ship in 2002 and 2006 to such countries as Japan, China, Vietnam, India, Myanmar, Egypt, Turkey, South Africa, and Cuba. In "Innocents Abroad Too", he shares his experiences and candid impressions, transporting the reader from bustling streets outside Shanghai's City God Temple to the Masai Mara plain.Along the way Pearson provides a literary journey, enriching his encounters with descriptions of the great books and great writers who have also brought the world closer to their readers. These touchstones are combined with journalistic sketches of the people and places he visits and Pearson's thoughtful meditations on the significance of travel and the importance of encountering the new. In the rich tradition of travel literature, "Innocents Abroad Too" offers a blend of experience and imagination, worlds familiar and strange.
