Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles
Simon Winchester travelled through the republic of Korea on foot to write this informal portrait. Along the way he befriended a variety of honeymooners, abalone divers, corporate executives, Buddhist nuns, American servicemen and many other interesting people who helped to shape his impressions. The result is an engaging, informed, and often humourous distillation of the writer's observations on the culture, people, language, economy and politics of this rapidly changing country.

Fabulous writer, even if he does seem easily excited by Korean women. Korea has massively changed AGAIN in the time since this book was written. Would love to see an updated version. Read full review

Excellent read. A journalist retraces the steps of dutch captives who were marched up the middle of Korea. His observations of Korea and anecdotes are both interesting and informative. Read full review
