When Christopher Hunt set off in search of Vietnams notorious Ho Chi Minh Trail, he hardly expected to end up on a rickety, Russianmade 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 1,700kilometer 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.
