On the shelves of the Booknook are some notable travel books. This one, Chinese Lessons by John Pomfret is an honest, compelling travelog of China highlighting the people, laws, customs and politics of China. John traveled throughout China and was even kicked out at one point. This book reminds me of another book, China Wakes although this book seems to be more readable and less confrontational. Also, The Mexicans by Patrick Oster, a brutally honest book about that country. If you want to see how tourists view us you could try Visitors To The United States And How They See Us by Bryant M. Wedge. Lots of stories of foreigners misconceptions of America. And finally, a great book for those headed Down Under, New Zealand Dictionary which could help you know what to do if someone calls you a "milksop". At the Booknook, all for $1.
Volunteers crazy about books.
