The Lunatic Express is the story of traveling with seatmates and deckmates who have left home without American Express cards on conveyances that PDF don't take Visa, and seldom take you anywhere you'd want to go. - - But it's also the story of traveling as it used to be -- a sometimes harrowing trial, of finding adventure in a modern, rapidly urbanizing world and the generosity of poor strangers, from ear cleaners to urban bus drivers to itinerant roughnecks, who make up most of the world's population. - More than just an adventure story, The Lunatic Express is a funny, harrowing and insightful look at the world as it is, a planet full of hundreds of millions of PDF people, mostly poor, on the move and seeking their fortunes.
