On Our Own in the Far East: Journals and Letters to Patrick by Bob Godsey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Joseph and Tonia Rose decided to travel the world without benefit of a tour guide or an interpreter. They wanted to experience this adventure while they were young. Their four-year adventure started in Asia when Joe was twenty-eight and Tonia was twenty-five. Joseph was born in Poland, raised in an Orthodox Jewish home, spoke five languages, and had an MA degree in horticulture. Tonia was a California girl with an artistic talent, and a hunger for knowledge and adventure. They wanted to learn about the varied cultures of the world. Their travel through Asia was at a time when major global adjustments were leading to World War II. They traveled as cheaply as possible, which meant deck class on ocean liners, third and fourth class on trains. This volume covers their adventure through December 1931.
