Eric Copage
In his one of a kind book The African American Travel Guide, travel guru Jon Haggins gives helpful tips such as how to prepare for your journey and how to have the most fun when you get there.  Jon is a veteran travel host with his own television show and nationally syndicated newspaper column.  He acts as the reader's personal guide through the palm dotted islands of Fiji, down the Nile pass the timeless temples, follow the rhythm of the African drum and aromas to Brazil, just to name a few of the fascinating locals offered up in his book.  In addition to the vivid descriptions and witty insights those familiar with Jon's work have come to expect, there is his unique practical information and advice. Do not miss shopping in Egypt and Morocco where Jon will show you how to become an experienced haggler and get the most for your dollar.  Before getting shots, applying for visas, or packing the first stitch of clothing, there is one item you must never forget to pack, "A sense of humor because it will help you get through the day."  In this informative and discerning book Jon shows you how to begin your trip - and how to end it - with a smile. (Eric Copage, best selling author of seven books published by Hyperion and William Morrow)
