9781598878578: NPR Road Trips: Postcards from Around the Globe: Stories That Take You Away . . .

Meet Colin Angus and Julie Wafael, who spent two years circumnavigating the globe using their hands and feet. Turn on the radio in Katmandu and hear music from the 70s. Learn how robot jockeys are solving a human rights problem in Dubai. (It has to do with camel races.) Get ready for carnival in Rio. And walk through old Beijing before it’s demolished for high-rise development.

NPR has correspondents all over the world. As listeners learn, most meet with friendliness and hospitality, even in the most out-of-the-way places.

About the Author:

NOAH ADAMS is an American broadcast journalist and author, known primarily for his more than thirty years of experience on National Public Radio. A former co-host of the daily All Things Considered program, he has also served as senior correspondent at the network's National Desk.

Internationally acclaimed, NPR produces and distributes programming that reaches a combined audience of 26.4 million listeners weekly, and, unlike other media, NPR’s audience continues to grow. NPR member organizations operate 784 stations, and another 117 public radio stations also present NPR programs, for a total of more than 900 stations nationwide who broadcast NPR programming.

From AudioFile:

Armed with a microphone and a tape recorder, NPR correspondents bring the listener along on travels to locations far and wide. Whether riding a bus on China's Silk Road, dancing in the streets of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival, or listening to 1970s rock music in Kathmandu, the listener is instantly transported through the correspondents' lively descriptions and the sounds of everyday life in far-flung locales. Hear the sounds of a creaky long-distance bus, the splash of water against a kayak in the Arctic Ocean, and the din of the markets and back streets of old Beijing. It's an experience not to be missed! S.E.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
