From Beijing's hutongs to the "always undefeated" city of Warsaw, follow Josh along with author Dave Norman as they explore the Far East and Eastern Europe by rail. Whether drinking with nomads in Mongolia, dining with locals in Seoul, or exploring Russian paintball combat with a "retired" Soviet arms dealer, Norman's blend of humor and history makes the adventure come alive.
"…she embodies my image of a Mongol grandma: skin like oiled leather, glistening brown eyes that search through heaven and time and space, her hair a rainbow of silver, one shade for each of her two or three hundred years moving around the steppe." —page 134
At its core, "Following Josh" is the story of two friends reuniting on an epic adventure across Eurasia. After teaching abroad, Josh is homeward bound while Dave takes the long way from their hometown to a new start in New York City—opposite trajectories, even while traveling together. Trapped together in stuffy Russian rail cars and cheap hostels, they realize just how far apart they've grown…and what it takes to start anew—in friendship as well as in life.
White River Junctions
By: Dave Norman
Publication Date: January 1, 2011
Cover Price: $16.95
Follow historian Dave Norman on a journey along the railroad tracks through White River Junction, Vermont, and back through time. Explore the town's last hundred years, and run your hands over weathered brick walls—every chip and nick holds a story like the grooves in a record. Meet four locals over coffee, and dare to ask what makes a Vermonter?
The history of White River Junction is that of New England, and so much of America. To read about its rise, glory, and quieting, is to explore the dynamics of the American Century...and to set the stage for our own lives and times.
