So Far and Yet So Near

This is a fascinating collection of over forty personal stories from American citizens living around the world. Their stories provide refreshing and sometimes profoundly different perspectives on America, reaffirming the strength and diversity of our national character. Readers will discover how national identity can be tied to a simple birdfeeder, how a naked man in Penn Station teaches an important lesson to a returning American, and much more. This book is their book, and yours, confirming how the millions of Americans living overseas make a difference in all our lives. Help ACA, Inc. by buying this book from ACA or any bookseller such as Amazon.
