The Vietnamese author writes about his experiences traveling through South and Central America and how he was accepted as just another human being rather than someone outside the mainstream. This book will inform the reader about the way non-white Americans feel in our country and how they are marginalized. South Americans accepted him as an equal. The most interesting thing of all is David's commentary on the corporate takeover of several under-developed countries. Environmental concerns are ignored and massive debt ensues. This book should be read along with John Perkins new book, "Hoodwinked."
