Synopsis: When Christopher Hunt set off in search of Vietnam's notorious Ho Chi Minh Trail, he hardly expected to end up on a rickety, Russian-made motorcycle navigating 5,000 kilometers of paths rarely traveled by tourists and on roads missing from maps. Hunt left the United States expecting to explore the 1,700-kilometer highway that was once the supply route for the North Vietnamese Army. He soon found himself roaming the Vietnamese countryside in need of help and direction. In the process, he found that being an American in Vietnam conjured constant reminders of the past and encountered a country and a people poised precariously between the ancient and the modern. With adventure, wit, and an eye for the absurd, Hunt goes beyond the newspaper headlines and myths about Vietnam to capture the color and complexity of Vietnam today.

Review: With a Russian motorcycle as his means of travel and the Ho Chi Minh Trail his itinerary, Christopher Hunt, whose father, Richard P. Hunt, was a television reporter in Vietnam during the war, traveled through postwar Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. In Sparring with Charlie, he describes a country in which water buffalo cool themselves in bomb craters and he encounters "every permutation of amputee." He was amazed that no one pointed an accusatory finger at him--in fact the younger generation seemed obsessed by all that is American. At a museum in Ho Chi Minh City, with exhibits showing the horrors of war, four schoolgirls asked his name and told him, "Chris, America No. 1."
