Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine being a twenty-eight-year-old single woman, working your way up the management consulting ladder, with your own expense account a fancy gym membership and salary to spare. Now imagine throwing it all away to Hitchhike a country under the iron fist of communism with a dubious grip on the language, accompanied by a colorful and sometimes frightening menagerie of characters, human and otherwise, and carrying an illegal video camera in your backpack. That's exactly what Karin Muller did.

At Globe Pequot, we specialize in travel guides, not travelogs. But every once in a while, we come across a tale so wonderful, we just can't walk away. It happened with Size of the Worlds. It's happened again with Hitchhiking Vietnam. What we love about this book is not just the adventure, the culture, the incredible vistas it opens up in our minds' eyes, but the grace, wit, and style with which Karin tells her story. Millions of PBS fans already agree!

You will absolutely fall in love with Karin Muller. We did!

PBS will be televising this film several times over the next three years and has an extensive site devoted to it at www.pbs.org which has developed a built-in audience. Karin has received thousands of e-mails asking, 'Where is the book?' Here it is at last!
