Hitching Rides with Buddha Author : Will Ferguson Publisher : Canongate Us Total Pages : 410 Release : 2006-04 ISBN 10 : 1841957852 ISBN 13 : 9781841957852 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Hitching Rides with Buddha Book Description: Take a humorist from the Great White North -- one part Bob and Doug McKenzie, the other Bill Bryson -- feed him lots of sake, and set him loose hitchhiking his way through polite Japanese society. The result is one of the warmest and funniest travelogues you've read. It had never been done before. Not in four thousand years of Japanese recorded history had anyone followed the Cherry Blossom Front from one end of the country to the other. Nor had anyone hitchhiked the length of Japan. And, as Ferguson learns, it illustrates that to travel is better than to arrive.
