In Why I Won't Eat Snails, she narrates her life story-one that includes a lifetime of exciting travels and experiences.

From her birth in China and on to Germany, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, and more, Why I Won't Eat Snails gives keen insight into the culture and culinary delights of the countries she visited. Including a variety of photographs, she opens a window to the past that also serves as a prelude to future adventures.
