Born in Pakistan to Baptist missionaries from rural Georgia, Jonathan S. Addleton crossed the borders of race, culture, class, and religion at an early age. Some Far and Distant Place tells an unusual coming-of-age story that has as much to do with the intersection of cultures as it does with the intimate details of one man's personal and family history. Whether sharing ice cream with a young Benazir Bhutto, selling gospel tracts at the tomb of a Sufi saint, or just gazing at the majestic Himalayas, Addleton is a thoughtful guide to a place that is shaping the world today, just as it shaped him as a youth.
