East is the true story of one woman's journey across Asia. Inspired by a book purchease at Fred and Pat Cody's legendary bookstore on Berkeley's Telegraph Avenue, Shelley Buck took off alone in 1972 on a journey she hoped would take her overland to India and Nepal. She had no idea this adventure would make her a feminist writer.

What they're saying about East:

"A compelling read, sensitively written, by an informed and courageous woman on the trip of a lifetime. I felt that I was taken along, tucked inside her backpack."

- Nancy Pringle, Eureka, California

"She captures a bygone time and place when young people took to the road, crossing the Bosphorus and then the steppes and deserts of the Middle East, to the Indus Valley and the Himalayan foothills beyond, often by public transport. Buck's unique vantage point as a female traveler who refused to be deterrid by those who said she couldn't or shouldn't travel on her own across lands now long-closed by war, makes for riviting reading."

- Judith Pierce Rosenberg, author of A Swedish Kitchen: Recipes and Reminiscences
