9780060750442: Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles

In the late 1980s, New York Times bestselling author Simon Winchester set out on foot to discover the Republic of Korea -- from its southern tip to the North Korean border -- in order to set the record straight about this enigmatic and elusive land.

Fascinating for its vivid presentation of historical and geographic detail, Korea is that rare book that actually defines a nation and its people. Winchester's gift for capturing engaging characters in true, compelling stories provides us with a treasury of enchanting and informed insight on the culture, language, history, and politics of this little-known corner of Asia.

With a new introduction by the author, Korea is a beautiful journey through a mysterious country and a memorable addition to the many adventures of Simon Winchester.

Product Description:

In 1988 Simon Winchester, author of The Surgeon of Crowthorne and The Map that Changed the World, set out on foot to discover the Republic of Korea. He wanted to put the record straight about this bustling South-East Asian country about which so little was written but which so many people thought they already knew. What he found was a striking and diverse country that had thrown off the legacy of war. Written in the engaging, informed, and often humorous style that has won him millions of fans worldwide, this edition of Korea with a new introduction is a treasury of fascinating and informed insight on the culture, people, language, history, and politics of this little-known country.
