Format: Paperback
Fetherling gives Canadian travelers a bad name. He promises adventure, but I did not feel like I was on the journey at all. I felt like he did not even go on his journey. His colonial attitude is all that needs to be said as far as the tone of the book goes.

He tries to make the book interesting, but he wraps himself up in pure fact and history: He uses these as fillers for the book. Bernadette kind of... vanishes from his book mysteriously, and he treats other cultures from a "I've got my nose way up here" point of view. He describes events as being so negative. Never positive.

He does not deliver anything but fact, and if you are the type of reader that enjoys reading literary travel books for FACT or HISTORY: Read this book. If you love emotion, culture, and self-discovery, DO NOT READ this book.

The cover is deceiving. Not once does he mention any of the people on his book jacket, nor does he delve into the mind of the cultures he "experiences". He gives himself too much credit.
