Knee Deep in Antarctica... And Other Places
by Robert N. Jenkins
When Robert N. Jenkins was named the St. Petersburg Times’s travel editor he had no passport. He’s now filling his third, but fewer than two out of five Americans travel outside the US. In this book of travels beyond North America – Antarctica, Bangkok, Israel, and more, Jenkins notes while the world’s populations may share a lot of everyday life, the differences are eye-opening, perhaps enviable.
