Shanachie Tour

ShanachieTour – A Library Road Trip Across America
By Erik Boekesteijn and Jaap van de Geer
Photographs by Geert van den Boogaard
“Just as early explorers roamed this country looking for settling places or good fortune, Erik, Jaap, and Geert—armed with laptops, cameras, video cameras, and sound equipment—roamed around a foreign place in a large mobile home (which they dubbed the MotherShip) looking for and collecting good stories. … the importance of the ShanachieTour lies in the indomitable spirit and delight with which [they] went after and captured stories both grand and small. A good idea, a human idea, a seeking of understanding and connection are all at the heart of this unique experience. … relive the tour through this wonderful volume and DVD.”
—Kathryn J. Deiss, ACRL, from the Foreword
