The estimated three to six million Americans who reside abroad are a diverse group, with many reasons for going overseas. All have stories to tell of cultural diversity, national identity and the complex emotions resulting from living in foreign societies. This collection of 47 stories provides refreshing and sometimes profoundly different perspectives on America, reaffirming the strength and diversity of our national character. Readers will discover how national identity can be tied to a simple birdfeeder, how a naked man in Penn Station teaches an important lesson to a returning American, and much more. This book is their book, and yours, confirming how the millions of Americans living overseas make a difference in all our lives.
