Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles

About the Book

Korea: A Walk Through the Land of Miracles

In the late 1980s, New York Times bestselling author Simon Winchester set out on foot to discover the Republic of Korea --- from its southern tip to the North Korean border --- in order to set the record straight about this enigmatic and elusive land.

Fascinating for its vivid presentation of historical and geographic detail, KOREA is that rare book that actually defines a nation and its people. Winchester's gift for capturing engaging characters in true, compelling stories provides us with a treasury of enchanting and informed insight on the culture, language, history, and politics of this little-known corner of Asia.
