". . . an entirely new vision of America through the eyes of a remarkable woman. . . Coburn and his fiancée, Didi Thunder, found their views of America transformed by Aama's ingenious and unpredictable responses to the 25-state odyssey they made...."
"A magical, excruciating journey...."
The Sunday Oregonian
"...with the enormous help of his future wife, Didi, and friends, he finds that personal discovery rarely occurs on the surface, and that true discernment is never easy, especially when both Aama and Didi appear to forsake him. A lovely, memorable tale, with fascinating photos."
San Francisco Sunday Examiner and Chronicle Book Review
"Aama ends up teaching more than she learns, and when her journey ends, her hosts' lives are forever changed. The reader, too, while often amused, is often enlightened and will long remember the charm and wisdom of Aama."
