Have you ever wondered what it would be like to start over?

From bestselling travel author Kyle McCormick comes Stranger in a Homeland, a cultural travelogue about beginning a new life in a foreign land.

Stranger in a Homeland chronicles one woefully unqualified American’s time spent living and working in Japan. With no money, no plan, and no ability to speak Japanese beyond a handful of phrases half-remembered from childhood anime, adventure and disaster are inevitable.

Through the author’s misadventures—and dozens of high-quality photographs—you can:

– Experience what it’s like to start over from square one
– Immerse yourself in Japan’s rich, vibrant, and often baffling culture
– Find inspiration and joy in the daily interactions of newfound friends from different worlds

McCormick’s debut memoir combines humor, culture, and history into one nonstop adventure. From casual travelers, to diehard Japanophiles, to anyone interested in beginning a new chapter in their own lives, readers are sure to feel as if they have embarked on a grand journey to a land unlike any other.
