Synopsis: Get ready for a wild ride! Carole's stories span 50 years and bobble close to home and around the world. They roam the yaylas of the Kaçkar Mountains and the highlands of Peru. They explore the streets of Senegal and the violent history of Guatemala. They wander the hillsides of Southern Spain and the steppes of Eastern Turkey. And they ramble the plains of Mesopotamia and the tundra of Iceland. Hold an assault rifle and a sheep's teat, visit Carole's childhood bathroom and her husband's dresser, careen the streets of Trabzon and join the Order of the Golden Dragon. Cook flat bread over an open fire, make friends around the globe, and sleep in a French garret and a Turkish container. You'll float a log to Yellow Island and take a plane with a hole in the wing, meet a Kurdish housewife and the women of Paris. You'll drink tea with armed guards and collect dead birds along the road. Prepare to expect the unexpected.
