Reflecting on the virtues of "alternative" but still dominant forms of transportation in many countries, the author asks readers to slow down and consider transportation as an experience in itself. Calling such modes of transportation, "the last frontiers of authentic travel," the author takes readers on a quick ride through many parts of the world via different modes of transportation: By chicken bus in Guatamala; by rickshaw in India; by cargo ship in Latin America; by matatu in Kenya; and by jeepney in the Philippines.
