A former jet-setting Filipina executive, Carolina also shares her American dream, a story of retirement, immigration, and love. At fifty-five, she immigrated to the United States and four years later became a new bride to an American businessman. Together, theyve created an extensive travel bucket list, crisscrossed North America four times, and blogged about a cruising lifestyle.
Carolina: Cruising to an American Dream tells how Carolina discovered America from within the cozy confines of an RV with lessons that came as fast as scenes changed. She not only learned to be a wife without losing her identity, but also to be an American without losing her roots. But, most of all, she learned about the beauty of America and her people, past, present, and future.
One of the most beloved books in American literature, Walden is must reading for any American or anyone interested in reading great literature. But for those who go there looking for reasons Thoreau became a recluse they are sure to be disappointed. Instead, reading Walden is more of a journey to the self and how that self can live in the world. This new edition has an insightful and lyrical essay introducing the text by Sam Pickering, the inspiration for the Dead Poets Society. His essay is the most provocative piece on Walden since e. B. White.
