Author: Allen Say
The magnificent desert, the endless reaches of the farm, the hustle and bustle of the city... Grandfather loves everything in this new country and thus, decided to settle here. However, when his daughter grows up and leaves, he starts to remember his hometown; he returns to see his homeland with nostalgia. The mountains and rivers began to miss the plants and trees in a foreign country again... A few years later, I also set foot on the road he had walked, and finally understood all of this. "Grandpa's Journey" is like old photos full of history. Through reminiscences of grandpa’s life in the United States and Japan, Alan Say speaks affectionately about his family’s cross-cultural experience. The common emotions that encapsulate nations and dreams also builds a bridge between Eastern and Western cultures.
