For example, travel across the vast Pacific with pre-Columbian South Amer. Indians living on rafts for weeks at a time; join a family of Medieval peasants in a cottage in Flanders at suppertime; bed down on the Orient Express as it pulls out of Istanbul; & look in on inhabitants of a Harlem apt. building in the 1930s.
