Synopsis: This funny and insightful journal of Jason Jones's solitary backpacking trip around the world on a budget of $40 a day explores the nighttime streets of Phnom Penh, the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat, a safari in deepest Africa, and the snowy slopes of Mount Everest. Armchair travelers are introduced to Chinese entrepreneurs who promote themselves to tourists visiting the Great Wall, to the gentle natives of Africa, and to the wise and generous friends who helped Jones learn Spanish in South America. This wide-eyed and earnest account of an amazing trek through 25 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America is perfect for anyone with a yen for adventure and a hunger for knowledge of the world beyond the borders of the United States.

About the Author: Jason Jones served as an officer in the U.S. Navy and saw much of the world while flying jets off aircraft carriers. He is currently a commercial real estate executive. He lives in Atlanta, Georgia.
