Dave Grimland journeys from his roots in Texas to his final home in Montana via stops in Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Bangladesh, and India-like Odysseus traveling home to Ithaka. As a member of the American diplomatic service, he had the rare opportunity to learn about other cultures and religions in a series of exciting and occasionally dangerous adventures. Take a deeper look into other cultures, and gain new perspectives on old, vexing problems with a Journey to Ithaka. "In a series of highly readable vignettes, career diplomat David Grimland shares personal experiences from his many years abroad. These entertaining, sometimes suspenseful accounts clearly reflect Grimland's intelligence, wit, and sensitivity to the cultural differences he encountered in foreign lands. A delightful book. I loved it!" -George Bass, distinguished professor emeritus at Texas A&M University; founder and chairman emeritus of the Institute of Nautical Archaeology
