Tom Brosnahan's humorous travel memoir recounts his service as a Peace Corps teacher in Turkey (1967-1969) leading to a career as a travel writer and author of dozens of travel guidebooks for Lonely Planet, Frommer's and Berlitz. Along the way he starred in a movie, sipped champagne in the sultans gilded palace, was almost eaten by wolves on the Iranian border, and fell in love with a lot of girls named Jane—the last of which was the girl of his dreams.

Brilliant read about Turkey
Well written stories that evoke imagery and fond memories of my travels through Turkey. A must read for those who are curious about Turkey, have ever wanted to travel there and especially for those who have enjoyed its culture, people and sites through their own personal travels. The author's own touching and sometimes humorous experiences interspersed with bits of history lessons make me eager to return to this country that I have always found so fascinating.
