"In the 1920s, groups of Mennonites fearing loss of autonomy moved from Canada to Latin America, where they closed their doors and minds to the secular world. There they live as if time stands still-an isolation with dark social consequences. In this memoir of an eight-month, 45,000 kilometre motorcycle journey across the Americas, Mennonite-born journalist Cameron Dueck offers an insider's view of this 21st century European diaspora, finding reasons to both love and loathe the culture he left-and, in the process, finding himself."-- Provided by publisher.
