In 1967, Bill and JoAnne tried to drive a Volkswagen bus around the world with their baby son, Zerky, and dog, Tarzan. From San Francisco they flew to Germany, where they purchased the camper van and headed east across southern Europe, into Asia, as far as they could go. They traveled across Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal, Sikkim, India, and Assam, where they hoped to take the Burma Road into China, but were turned back. From there they headed for Thailand and Hong Kong, one-year-old Zerky having a magical effect on everyone they met along the way. An adventure story about a once-upon-a-time journey, this is a story that will challenge pre-conceptions about people of the Middle East and beyond.
