Lost Continent PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lost Continent  free pdf This volume contains humorous accounts of two journeys, one taken across America, the other a trek across Europe. "The Lost Continent" is an account of one man's rediscovery of America and his search for the perfect small town. Instead he finds a continent that is doubly lost: lost to itself because it is blighted by greed, pollution, mobile homes and television- and lost to him because he has become a foreigner in his own country. In "Neither Here Nor There", the author journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the European continent, to Istanbul. In doing so he retraces his steps as a student 20 years before, visiting countries including Norway, France and Italy.
